Matt Riddle Faces Sexual Abuse Allegations

Matt Riddle debuted on this week’s Smackdown, but it seems he might be in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Throughout the last 24 hours, the #SpeakingOut movement has revealed several stars in the world of professional wrestling who have been called out for various forms of sexual misbehavior. Names such as Travis Banks, Joe Coffey, Jordan Devlin and many more have been mentioned. Now it seems Riddle is on the list as well.

 Candy Cartwright, an independent wrestler, has called out Matt Riddle. Cartwright revealed that in 2018 she was traveling with Riddle and a few other wrestlers. According to her, while the other talents were sleeping, Riddle sexually abused her.

I’m posting this because I have been so sad for so long. I didn’t realize that what he did to me was not ok. I realize now, reading these other brave women’s stories, that I can’t be afraid anymore and I have to #speakout.

Back in May of 2018 I was riding with Matt Riddle and a few other wrestlers. During the van ride, when the 3 other wrestlers had fallen asleep, Matt asked me to “hop on his dick”. When I refused (although we had previously been together I was incredibly uncomfortable in that setting ) When I said no, he grabbed me by my throat, choked me and said “what if I just made you?” I ended up giving him oral sex (praying someone wouldn’t wake up) to get out of having intercourse with him. It was incredibly humiliating.

It is never ok to put your hands on a woman, it’s also not ok to not listen when she says no.

Riddle has been a married man since 2011 and has three kids as well. He has yet to comment on these allegations.
