Brock Lesnar won the WWE Universal Title almost 24 hours ago and already has a huge target on his back. Shortly after his win, NXT star and former UFC fighter Matt Riddle took to Twitter to once again throw out a challenge “The Beast’s” way. Riddle has been mentioning Lesnar quite a bit since signing with WWE. Here’s what Riddle had to say about Lesnar following Crown Jewel on Twitter:
“Thank you Brock for coming back and winning the universal title! You’re right where I need you bro and it’s gonna be that much sweeter when I retire you in a couple years.”

This isn’t the first time Riddle has mentioned Lesnar before. Shortly after being signed by WWE, Riddle noted that he’d like to win the NXT Title, get the call up to Monday Night Raw, and be the man to retire Lesnar. A headlining match at WrestleMania opposite his fellow former UFC combatant would be the ideal venue. It will be interesting to see if they ever cross paths on WWE TV moving forward.
