It appears that Matt Riddle will be making his Madison Square Garden debut next week.
The updated lineup for WWE's house show at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, December 26 lists that Riddle will team with Aleister Black, Ricochet, Pete Dunne & Velveteen Dream in an NXT 10-man tag match against Tommaso Ciampa & The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish). The match had originally been advertised as Black, Ricochet, Dunne, Velveteen Dream & Johnny Gargano teaming together before Gargano's heel turn.
Riddle had tweeted this week: "It’s only Tuesday and I already have the itch to get back in the ring. Maybe my year isn’t over yet and I can get one more match before the end of the year"
