Matt Riddle was written off NXT television, losing to Timothy Thatcher in a Cage Fight this past Thursday.

Earlier this week, reports surfaced indicating Matt Riddle was slated to move to the main roster, more specifically the SmackDown brand.

According to Wrestler Observer Radio, Matt Riddle filmed a vignette earlier this week to introduce him to the SmackDown brand. As of this past Monday, it was set to air on tonight’s episode on FOX.

Fightful Select (subscription required) reports that Riddle was not present at the SmackDown tapings, either in-ring or in front of the those in attendance at the WWE Performance Center.

Based on that information, we should not expect to see Riddle in the ring for the next two weeks.

It’s not known if he was backstage during the tapings, filming any additional vignettes.
