WWE RAW talent Matt Riddle has undergone a name change. His first name has been dropped from his on-screen character and he will now be known as “Riddle”. The name change is reflected on WWE’s website. PWInsider added that the decision to change Matt Riddle’s name was made today.

Riddle was moved to the Monday Night RAW roster as a part of the 2020 WWE Draft. He competed this past Monday against Sheamus in a Team RAW Survivor Series qualifying match that he lost.

Riddle made headlines earlier this month and in September when he elected to file a lawsuit against Samantha Tavel, who dons the in-ring name “Candy Cartwright”, for her allegations against Riddle during the #SpeakingOut movement.

Earlier this month, Tavel launched a civil lawsuit against Riddle, an unnamed co-founder of EVOLVE and WWE. In documents obtained by Fightful, she is seeking $10 million from each of the defendants.
