WWE COO, Triple H recently revealed that he would be open to Matt Riddle potentially returning to UFC for a fight whilst under WWE contract.
The Game told Fightful.com that he is open to the possibility, although he would have to talk to Riddle about it as he also stated he isn’t sure if that is something that the NXT Superstar wants to pursue himself.
“We’d talk to Matt about it and see what the opportunity was. Is it something we would like to do? Is it something he would like to do? There’s no set in stone template in how you deal with this stuff. We have talent within the system that get offers to do a lot of things. Even internationally, we have talent from India, but he’s like a television and movie star in India, but his dream to be a wrestler. Every now and then he goes home and stars in a movie and stays in shape, continues to do everything he can do while he’s there and comes back and gets his training. If the opportunity is there, and it’s the right thing, we talk to them about it.”
“You bring up Matt Riddle, one of my favorite talents out there right now. He brings out an intensity and dynamic that few bring to the ring. The question would be, if an offer came, would it be something he’s interested in doing? Because he’s having the time of this life doing what he’s doing. He might, but I don’t know that he’d want to take a moment out and train differently. He loves what he does, and it shows, because he’s one of the best in the world,” HHH said.
