Riddle himself has already revealed talks with both WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling in interviews. It looks like it's the former who will snag him though, and that's exciting for fans of NXT; realistically, that's where a performer like Matt Riddle will go first. He's a big enough indy name to make a splash there without drowning under the weight of expectations by leaping onto Raw or SmackDown too quickly.
Fans have already reacted to Meltzer's claim with a mixture of happiness and disappointment. Some would have preferred to see him tear it up in Japan, whereas others realise how big an opportunity this is for someone so unique.
Meltzer didn't expressly say this, but it seems like an official announcement from WWE on the former UFC fighter and Evolve Champion is imminent over the next few days.
