MATT RIDDLE has broken his silence after widespread reports of him heading to rehab.
The WWE Superstar reportedly failed a drug test and was handed a six-week ban.
It’s the second time in 2022 that Riddle has reportedly failed a drug test.
His on-screen character was recently written out of a storyline on Raw.
Riddle is said to have sustained an injury when fellow Superstar Solo Sikoa attacked him.
But the real reason for his absence is another apparent violation of WWE’s wellness policy.
Riddle posted to Twitter for the first time since reports of the ban.
He was posed next to a mystery woman while enjoying a candlelit meal on the beach.
And the wrestler said: “I’ve been working on myself a lot lately and for the first time ever I’ve been saying no and setting boundaries.
“Some people aren’t happy about it, but I couldn’t be healthier or happier.
“Thanks for all the support.”
The 36-year-old has been with WWE since 2018.
He was formerly an MMA fighter and had a five-year stint with the UFC.
