Matt Riddle is gearing up to make a grand re-entry into the wrestling arena, no later than March 2024.
Big Time Wrestling has rolled out the red carpet, announcing that Riddle will be a centerpiece in the upcoming blockbuster, “The Reunion 3: Cavalcade of Legends,” scheduled to unfold in Chillicothe, Ohio on March 9th, 2024. The former United States Champion is not just slated to clash in the ring; he’s also set to be the heart of a meet-and-greet, sharing moments and memories with fans before the curtains rise on the show.
A monumental clash awaits as Riddle is set to face Rob Van Dam in an inaugural encounter that promises to be etched in wrestling lore. As of now, this is the crowning jewel, the only match officially heralded for the event. However, the stage is set to be graced by a constellation of wrestling legends, ensuring an unforgettable spectacle.
The tides of Riddle’s journey may also swirl through other shores. With his 90-day non-compete clause fading away in December, the arena opens for the former WWE star to blaze his trail across various promotions before he steps into the Big Time Wrestling spotlight. The rumor mills are abuzz, heralding the interest of multiple wrestling conclaves, eager to embrace Matt Riddle into their fold once the free agency bells ring.
