Roman Reigns’ scheduled Universal Championship match against Goldberg is off WrestleMania 36 card. Now, WWE is looking for a superstar who who could replace The Big Dog at The Show of Shows. NXT Superstar Matt Riddle has already established the rivalry with Goldberg by constantly disrespecting him and questioning his in-ring skills. The Original Bro has gotten himself quite over with the WWE Universe since signing with WWE.
WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry wants Riddle to replace Reigns at WrestleMania and challenge Goldberg for the title. He believes that it’s always easier for a superstar to work with someone whom he has the chemistry with. Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion addressed the subject during a recent episode of Busted Open Radio.
“It’s easy to work with somebody that people want to see you work. They want this. Man, I love things that go together. I like peanut butter. I like jelly, I like milk, and I like cereal. And I definitely like meat on my sandwiches so I mean you gotta be able to put things together that match, that go together. that everybody wants to see.”
Moreover, The World Strongest Man pointed out Riddle’s lack of respect towards Goldberg. He noted that having them square off against each other would definitely work.
“Matt Riddle and Goldberg had an issue. Some of them based off respect. You know, you overstepping your bounds, like you haven’t paid enough dues to be comfortable like that. And whatever the case may be, but I’m just saying. If you have an issue, and it’s gonna go to blows and it almost went to blows a couple of times. Yep. let ‘em fight, put it together.”
