Matt Riddle made his debut on Friday Night Smackdown two weeks ago defeating none other than AJ Styles, the current Intercontinental Champion. Since then, Riddle has been in a rivalry with King Corbin, watching what happened in the last show of the blue brand. However, we are close to Summerslam, “the biggest party of the summer” and WWE may have plans with Riddle for this pay-per-view.
You can compete for the Intercontinental Championship
When the ¨original BRO¨ debuted at the blue brand, it was in a fight against ¨the phenomenal¨ AJ Styles as we mentioned before. However, it was a non-title fight, although it ended with Riddle’s victory over Styles. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE plans to take advantage of that Matt Riddle victory over Aj Styles to create a rivalry for the Intercontinental Championship in Summerslam.
¨AJ Styles vs. Matt Riddle was set when Riddle beat Styles in the Smackdown non-title match. We will also likely see Matt Riddle against King Corbin before his fight against AJ Styles for the Intercontinental Championship. “
This is quite logical based on the headline fights that have been going on lately on the main roster. Every time a title contender beat the champion in non-title matches, a rivalry was created for a pay-per-view with the goal of a title match. It remains to be seen if this is a reality or there may be a change of plans. Matt Riddle’s situation is still at risk after being accused of sexual abuse. We already know very well that Vince McMahon’s company has zero tolerance for these types of allegations.
