WWE in huge blow with Matt Riddle forced to pull out of SummerSlam PPV with injury putting end to Seth Rollins match | The Sun

RIDDLE has been ruled out of SummerSlam due to an injury, which has postponed his match against Seth Rollins.

The former UFC fighter and Rollins were scheduled to face off in the biggest pay-per-view event of the summer this Saturday at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.


However, WWE confirmed that Riddle suffered a stinger after the four-time world champion's brutal attack on RAW.

Rollins assaulted the ex-US Champion after the former and the Street Profits lost a Six Man Tag Team Match to The Bloodline on RAW this past Monday.

The 36-year-old flattened his rival with a shot using the steel steps as well as a Curb Stomp at ringside.

But the real damage occurred after The Visionary crushed Riddle's scull with a Curb Stomp against the steel steps.

The former NXT star is thus sidelined from SummerSlam and his rival suggested he won't appear on the show after their match was scrapped.

Rollins tweeted: "For anyone who purchased a ticket to #SummerSlam hoping to see me in action, I apologize.

"I did everything I could over the last 6 months to earn my spot on this show, but some things are out of my control.

"Thank you for always singing my song. They’ll hear ya someday."

It is not known how legitimate Riddle's injury is as rumours suggest this could be scripted to prolong their rivalry.

There is speculation suggesting that Triple H wants to put together several surprises at SummerSlam after taking over as head of creative following Vince McMahon's retirement.

Word has it that Rollins could still perform against a surprise opponent like he did at WrestleMania 38 when he faced the returning Cody Rhodes.
