It might be a bit. There are a lot of reasons to write a wrestler off of television, whether it is for the long term or the short term. Sometimes it might be done as a way to freshen someone up or as a way to boost up another wrestler for taking out their rival. It can lead to quite the return later on and now it seems that WWE has done both of those things at the same time.

This week’s Monday Night Raw featured Matt Riddle and Kevin Owens unsuccessfully challenging the Usos for the Tag Team Titles. Following the match, Solo Sikoa attacked Riddle, including hitting him with a Samoan Spike and a running hip attack in the corner. Sikoa then gave Riddle another running hip attack with a chair around Riddle’s neck. As a result, Riddle was taken out on a stretcher. There is no word on how long he could be out of action.
It was a busy night. Check out the setup, the match and the attack after the match:
Opinion: This accomplished a few things at once and that is a good way to use some television time. Riddle is going to go away for a bit, meaning that he is going to be able to come back and do something bigger than usual. At the same time, this made Sikoa look like a monster and that is what he should be as the enforcer for the biggest stable WWE has seen in years.
