Someone Close To Matt Riddle Denies He Went To Rehab After Second Drug Test

Top WWE Monday RAW Stars Matt Riddle and Kevin Owens challenged Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos for their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships on the December 5th episode of WWE RAW, but they would come up short. Immediately following the match, Sami Zayn and The Usos continued their beatdown on Riddle until Owens made the save and chased them from ringside with a steel chair. Solo Sikoa then completely destroyed Matt Riddle and he was taken away in an ambulance.

It was mentioned on previous reports that this viscous attack angle was done as a way to write Riddle off of WWE TV for a number of weeks as a result of Riddle failing a second drug test this year and it was expected that The Original Bro would be going to rehab. Matt also violated the company’s wellness policy this past summer and that was the reason why his match with Seth “Freakin” Rollins was removed from SummerSlam and moved to Clash at the Castle.

Dave Meltzer noted on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “one source close to Matt Riddle denied the story of The Original Bro going to rehab after the failed second drug test and it was mentioned that he was taking time off due to the pressure of going through a divorce.” WWE has confirmed that The Original Bro will be off of television for 6 weeks, but they haven’t commented nor confirmed him failing two drug tests and going to rehab.
