on the heels of Matt Riddle’s recent digs at Bill Goldberg, Booker T has taken
to his Reality of Wrestling podcast to
hit back at NXT’s uber-popular Bro.
For those unaware, Riddle took to his social media channels
to take a dig at Goldberg before, during, and after WWE’s Super ShowDown event;
Goldberg’s awful match against The Undertaker only giving Riddle further ammunition
in his quest to mock the WCW icon’s in-ring ability.
Booker T is somebody who was in WCW for the duration of
Goldberg’s four-year run – heck, Booker himself was with Ted Turner’s rasslin’
company from 1993 until it closed its doors in 2001 – and he’s now used his
podcast platform to take a swipe at Riddle and his ring work.
As the two-time WWE Hall of Famer put it, “I was listening
to Matt Riddle talk about Goldberg. I got a chance to watch Matt Riddle work.
This guy needs a lot of work. You talk about somebody that needs to work on
their craft? This Matt Riddle needs to work on his craft – and that’s coming
from Booker T.”
Booker would go on to extend an invite for Riddle to visit
the Texas native’s own Reality of Wrestling school: “I wish Matt Riddle would
come down to my school and get a first-class Wrestling 101 training. Before
Matt Riddle starts talking about anybody, Matt Riddle needs to work on his game
and work on it very hard.”
For his part, Riddle himself has already taken to Twitter to
reference Booker’s comments.
Knowing how The King of Bros isn’t afraid to pull any
punches, it remains to see what further interaction comes of all of this.
