Riddle offered new three-year WWE deal worth over $1 million

Matt Riddle is close to signing a huge, new WWE deal according to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter with Dave Meltzer reporting that the former UFC star will be getting over a million dollars for his services.

The new three-year deal is worth $400,000 per year, for a total of $1.2 million plus an additional $50,000 for every time he performs in Saudi Arabia when the tours in the country restart.

The 34-year-old has a WWE deal that expires in August 2021 so WWE is clearly eager to get him locked for a few more years.

Riddle joined WWE in mid-2018 and was assigned to the NXT brand, officially debuting in late October of the same year. He moved to the main roster in June of this year, first wrestling on Smackdown before he was traded to Raw during the draft episode in October.
