According to latest buzz, WWE CEO Vince McMahon is rumoured to have found the next Shawn Michaels and might already planning to give him the necessary push.
The high flying technical wrestler, Matt Riddle seems to have caught the boss’s attention who sees a reincarnation of the “Heartbreaking Kid” in him. Matt Riddle’s frostbite story during a promo catches the attention WWE Boss Vince McMahon. In the particular promo, Riddle claimed to have not worn shoes as a kid owing to Frostbite and this is something that Vince sees as a great backstory that could be further developed for a Push in the WWE.
Even in the past, Vince is known for being an admirer of a rebel persona, whether be it CM Punk, Bray Wyatt or Mr Westlemania himself. Although Riddle is known for the positive aspect of his character, he surely doesn’t fail to attract controversy.

“Vince likes guys like Shawn who have that rebel mentality and he sees some of Shawn in Matt. Matt can rub some people the wrong way but he’s a good guy and he will do great when Vince calls him up. I think he’s a future world champion. Vince will try to tweak him but his personality will get him far.”
The UFC star turned professional wrestler is a unique and talented performer. Given the successful runs of Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey along with a successful backstory of Rey Mysterio which involved Cane Velasquez, the former UFC star surely as a bright future in the company.
However, being on the top of the roster has never guaranteed success to any wrestler. But If he has the support of Mr.Mcmahon himself and is successful in landing himself a push, them he can definitely aspire to become a main eventer in the coming years.
