A vignette has been recorded to promote Matt Riddle’s call-up to Friday Night Smackdown. Current plans are for the vignette to run this Friday.
As reported earlier, the WWE on Fox twitter account has already planted the seeds for the call-up by referring to his NXT loss last night on NXT.
Matt Riddle’s official call-up has been planned for a while now and was supposed to happen before Wrestlemania, however, the coronavirus pandemic changed those plans. Most people believed that Riddle would eventually be brought in to the Raw brand due to Paul Heyman being so high on him, but inevitably the plan was always to bring him to Smackdown.
