Brock Lesnar has undoubtedly been one of the most powerful men to ever step inside the squared circle. With a glorious UFC run, his tenure with the WWE was sure to gather massive popularity. However, this fame often puts Lesnar on bad terms with his co-stars.
One such man who got into bad blood with Lesnar was Matt Riddle. Unbeknownst to many, Riddle has been an MMA star who played for the UFC before making his WWE debut. Sharing this connection with Brock, Riddle has always wanted to face off against The Beast Incarnate in the squared circle.
Every time I do an interview I watch you all scramble to either to tell me how much you hate me or how much you love me and I just love how easy it is to get you all worked up. Also don’t get worked into a shoot especially with a former UFC fighter bro 😂 pic.twitter.com/mfeYwakn2s

In order to bring his plan to action, Matt Riddle made multiple attempts to call out Brock Lesnar. However, Lesnar had no intention of going against him. While Lesnar never replied to him on the camera, a heated backstage segment took place between the duo, after which Matt kept his plans to himself.
As per talkSPORT, Lesnar confronted Riddle behind the cameras and said, “Kid, you might as well stop saying my name and tagging me in sh*t because you and I will never work together. Ever.” Brock Lesnar might also have been aware of Riddle’s claim about retiring him. Now that Matt Riddle is out of the company, there is hardly any possibility of seeing the two in a faceoff.
Brock Lesnar once completely ignored Matt Riddle from his opponent list
As is known to all, Brock Lesnar is not the guy one would probably love to engage in a rivalry with. However, Matt Riddle had already stepped into the mud and thus had to bear the consequences. Though he never got an opportunity to face Brock Lesnar in a singles match, the two got to share the ring once.
Back at the 2022 WWE Elimination Chamber, six men put their best foot forward to walk out as the WWE Champion. With this, WWE gave Brock Lesnar and Matt Riddle a chance to share the ring. During the opening segment of the match, Brock took a stroll down the ring, staring at all his opponents.
However, he ignored Matt Riddle and passed him like he had never existed. Brock is not the man to take jabs on the mic, but his action spoke for all the disrespect that came from Riddle’s end to him. Perhaps it was the best reply from Lesnar and Riddle’s antics towards The Beast Incarnate abruptly came to an end.
