Matt Riddle to make final indie appearance for PROGRESS


While Matt Riddle appeared at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV last night and was confirmed to have signed with WWE, he won't be making his final independent wrestling appearance until late next month.

PROGRESS Wrestling announced today that Riddle will be appearing at their show at The SSE Arena, Wembley in England on September 30. An opponent for Riddle has yet to be announced.

After it had become apparent over the past month that he was headed to WWE, Riddle was shown sitting in the front row at TakeOver last night between Velveteen Dream vs. EC3 and Adam Cole vs. Ricochet. On commentary, Mauro Ranallo called him another blue-chip signing for NXT.

Riddle lost to PCO at Joey Janela's Lost in New York on Friday night in his last match before appearing at TakeOver.

PROGRESS has a close working relationship with WWE. The SSE Wembley show is the biggest event in the promotion's history.
