Former WWE star Matt Riddle recently appeared on The MMA Hour and shed light on his departure from WWE in September 2023. While not definitive on a potential return, he acknowledged the complex factors surrounding his release, including multiple failed drug tests.

Riddle expressed mixed feelings, viewing the termination as both opportune and challenging. He highlighted both the demanding WWE schedule and the recent birth of his son as contributing factors. He further elaborated, "There were multiple variables that played into my departure... failing a couple of drug tests, you know. For me, at least, the writing was on the wall."



The interview delved into the specifics of his failed tests. Riddle revealed, "You're allowed to smoke weed. I went to the strip club and did some cocaine a couple of times, and I failed a drug test." He clarified that these instances involved cocaine use and were isolated events. He noted WWE's random testing protocol, attributing a double failure to overlapping test periods.

While acknowledging his talent and entertainment value, Riddle conceded, "I don't think I was a good fit [for WWE], at least at the time," especially considering the company's image-conscious approach.

The conversation also touched upon the financial implications of Riddle's release. He mentioned a contract structure suggesting potentially higher earnings in the year following his departure. This detail, coupled with his drug test failures, seemingly contributed to WWE's decision.
