In a day marked by unfortunate news, Riddick Moss and Emma, an engaged couple, found themselves among the names released by WWE following the company’s merger. However, Riddick Moss is determined to maintain a positive outlook, using X (formerly known as Twitter) as his platform to signal that his wrestling journey is far from its conclusion.
Moss’s tweet expressed his perspective on the situation, saying, “Well I did it – I graduated from WWE. I know a lot of people think my career really took a downturn once Mr. Levesque took over, but, in actuality, my per-match fee skyrocketed through the roof. Other promoters, get ready to back the brinks truck up.”
A former college football player for the University of Minnesota, Moss’s WWE journey began in 2014 when he attended a tryout. For the next six years, he primarily featured in “WWE NXT,” often as part of the God Gifted Athletes team alongside Tino Sabbatelli. In January 2020, he made the transition to the main roster. While on the main roster, Moss achieved limited success, including winning the 2022 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and briefly holding the WWE 24/7 Championship. His last appearance on WWE TV was in May when he participated in a #1 Contendership match for the Intercontinental Title on “WWE Raw.”
Moss’s tweet reflects a resilient spirit and determination to continue his wrestling career outside WWE’s confines. The prospect of promoters clamoring to secure his services suggests he is confident in his abilities and marketability as a professional wrestler.
