As previously reported, Matt Riddle is said to have a lot of heat on him backstage in WWE, and his elimination in 40 seconds in the men’s Royal Rumble match on Sunday is rumored to have been a punishment. Earlier today, Matt Riddle posted a comment on Twitter on his Rumble elimination. As noted, Riddle entered in at No. 23, and he was eliminated by Baron Corbin in 40 seconds.

Riddle wrote, “This is a pic from this year’s 2020 Royal Rumble, as you can tell by my face everything went according to plan #sarcasm #bro.” You can check out that tweet below.
