WWE’s Matt Riddle Admits To Cheating On Wife, Denies Sexually Assaulting Pro Wrestler Candy Cartwright (VIDEO)
WWE superstar Matt Riddle is acknowledging that he indeed cheated on his wife with pro wrestler Candy Cartwright, but he is outright denying her sexual assault allegations in a new video.
“I’m going to make this quick. I have never in my entire life sexually assaulted a man, woman, or anybody,” Riddle begins the video.
He then addressed his accuser directly.
“Candy Cartwright, I never sexually assaulted you. The story about that van trip and the driver being asleep and me forcing you to do stuff and hop on whatever is a complete lie. It’s a fabricated story because you’re still mad. You know why you’re mad? Because yes, you’re right, we had an affair, you have plenty of evidence of that. You know what? I never denied it because it happened. Do I want to talk about it? Do I really want to share about it? No, it’s embarrassing because I feel like real piece of crap cheating on my wife and doing that and now having to talk about it publicly but I have to.”
The Smackdown Superstar talked about how he began to feel depressed with all the lying and cheating on his partner.
“It’s not something cool, I didn’t want to brag about it. I tried to end it, i told my wife about you and us. I blocked you, I blocked your social media. You then started using messaging apps, you kept coming.”
“At the end of the day, I’m not perfect. We did have an affair and I’m not happy about that. But, I never sexually abused anybody, I never sexually assaulted anybody. And when I wanted to get out of this relationship, out of this situation, she said no and kept pursuing me and harassing me and stocking me. And when she didn’t get her way, she used the #SpeakingOut movement to try and ruin my career. Completely unacceptable.”

It remains unclear if Cartwright has taken her claims to the police.
