WWE Criticized Over Using Matt Riddle's Personal Issues In Feud With King Corbin At WWE Payback
There was a lot of fan criticism over the Matt Riddle vs. King Baron Corbin feud coming out of Sunday's WWE Payback pay-per-view.

Payback saw Riddle win his main roster singles pay-per-view debut over King Corbin, getting the win by pinfall after a Floating Bro from the top. Corbin later attacked Riddle backstage after the match. Video from the match can be seen above.

Earlier in the night Riddle was interviewed backstage by Alyse Ashton, who brought up a tweet that Corbin had made earlier in the night. The tweet mentioned how Riddle was a failure at home, a reference to his recent admitted infidelity. Riddle seemed shocked by the comment, and went quiet before walking off.

Fans on social media criticized WWE for using Riddle's personal issues in the storylines, and potential references to his "#MeToo" accusations.

The tweet that Corbin made is still live as of this writing.

"Tonight, I prove that Matt Riddle is a failure in a WWE ring. By the way…he's already proven that he's a failure at home. #WWEPayback," he wrote.

Corbin and Riddle have not addressed the line or the match as of this writing. There's no word yet on what WWE has planned next for the feud.
