Matt Riddle and Lisa of WWE Are Now Officially Divorced!

After being married for over ten years, Matt Riddle of WWE and Lisa Riddle announced their divorce on social media this weekend.

On Saturday, Lisa uploaded a picture of them with their three kids along with the caption, “It has been precisely one month since the judge approved the paperwork and granted us divorce. We are grateful to everyone who has supported us throughout this entire ordeal as the kids and I are having fun on our new trip.”


Lisa announced on Twitter that the two have been apart since last year. Riddle was charged in 2020 with sexually abusing Candy Cartwright in 2018 when he was still active in the independent wrestling scene.

Riddle was aware of the affair but insisted their connection was mutually consenting. The case that Cartwright had filed against Riddle, the WWE, and former Evolve CEO Gabe Sapolsky was dismissed in July of last year.

Since a year ago, Riddle has enjoyed success as a member of the tag team RK-Bro with Randy Orton.

The Usos were supposed to compete for the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Championships against the duo at WrestleMania Backlash the following week, but on this week’s SmackDown, the main event was changed to The Bloodline vs. Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton, and Riddle in a six-man tag match with no gold on the line.

In a recent interview with The Ringer, Orton discussed how much joy the cooperation is giving him “I’m having a blast outside, for real. They made me put on a graduation gown and cap on Monday. You wouldn’t expect to see Randy Orton wearing a cap and gown when they give me tasks that are kind of absurd.

I laughed out of excitement because I knew the audience would be asking, “What the hell is he doing?” I feel like if I grin, break the fourth wall, or do anything else that lets you know I’m having fun at this stage in my career—after the career I’ve had and all the sometimes monotonous intensity, I did that for so long—it draws you in more because I was so against allowing people in before.

Nothing more than “character, character, character.” I have to act vicious, irate, and furious for them to think I want to pull this guy’s head off. Now that I’ve been around for a while, I can still do that, but I also get a pass when I behave out of character or when I do things that perhaps a babyface wouldn’t do.


There might be a sign in Gorilla that reads, “no eye pokes,” and I’m certain it’s still there even though it doesn’t include the words “unless Randy Orton.” If I get away with an eye poke, it’s okay, but compared to the things I used to get away with, I can get away with this.

I’m having fun and remaining true to my heel persona, which is what attracted me to the dance, but I can be more forgiving in how I go about doing that now.”

As a result of Seth’s unkind words, Riddle came under fire. He was told that if he wanted to talk about Seth’s family, they would also discuss Riddle’s, but that was impossible because Riddle doesn’t have one because his wife left him and took the kids because they “don’t want to see your b**ch ass anymore.”

Okay, well, then
