In a video posted on his social media, Matt Riddle spoke about the accusations brought against him by indie wrestler Candy Cartwright.
Riddle admitted that he had an affair with Cartwright and in the process he cheated on his wife but he said that never in his life he sexually assaulted or abused anyone.
The former NXT Tag Team champ said that he felt sad and depressed about lying to his wife and friends because he didn’t want anyone to find out about his affair but the only way out was to come clean and tell his wife about it.
Addressing Cartwright, he told her that he kept blocking her on different forms of social media and she kept harassing and stalking him and his friends, showing up at hotels asking for him. “You’re crazy,” Riddle said.
“At the end of the day, I’m not perfect, we did have an affair, and i’m not happy about that,” Riddle continued, repeating that he never sexually assaulted anyone.
He said that when he wanted to end the affair, Cartwright refused and when she didn’t get her way, she used the #SpeakingOut movement to share false stories.
