So, we see a "report" with no actual sources just basing things off a tweet. So, nothing to see there really.

And honestly this whole thing reeks of guys playing things up on Twitter to get people talking and people jumping to conclusions as a result. And reading through this thread, missions accomplished I guess.

Knew his over confidence would eventually get him in trouble. Would also explain why he was the first guy to be fed to Killian Dain... that should of immediately had the alarm bells ringing.

I can only base my opinion on what he's been like regarding his own self-assessment. And it's that he really buys into his own hype. He gives the vibe of someone who'd go and act like he's better than his co-workers and that won't slide. Regardless how good you are, you don't get to act the part without getting backlash for it. At the very least, if you're higher up the hierarchy, you'll get isolated because no one will want to be degraded by your treatment. Some people need to learn that being naturally gifted at something doesn't mean shit in personal life. That's why some of the most successful peopel are lonely. People won't want to be around you if you're a prick.

I can see why he would rub people the wrong way.

I really hope he doesn't get driven away from the company. I enjoy his matches. They're usually bangers.

It has to be an angle. I mean if you have heat - whatever, not everybody is going to like you nor do you have to like anybody/everybody. But whinging about this on twitter "Nobody likes me, make them play with me Mommy" is cringy.
This is very obviously a work/storyline building.
Such videos make him look bad, doesn`t matter it is a work or not.

I'm not surprised he has heat but the locker rooms are full of pussies who don't want to step on any toes. Riddle's got an attitude but the thing is, he doesn't need WWE so he isn't afraid of stepping on toes. He's a cunt but I can't blame the guy for trying to make something happen. At least he hasn't quit and sat on Instagram whining about shit until he gets what he wants.

Ofc he needs WWE. Else case he wouldn`t be there and hang in NXT.

No he doesn't.

He could easily go to AEW, NJPW, ROH, Impact, MLW etc.
Many of the other guys there could do that as well. Why is he "better" then?

And why did he go to WWE then for drying-out in NXT, when he doesn`t need it? He is already 33 and wrestled for years. Obvisouly he couldn`t convince WWE to bring him in the main shows or in WWE PPVs, where the big money and promotion is.

^ he ain't be wrestling that long actually. He was in mma first.

If he went to aew he would be one of the top stars for them easily. He is great in the ring, has a great look, legit athlete too and good on the microphone as well as charismatic. Also a lot of the stuff he says is right <img src="http://i.imgur.com/7KU7Fqx.png" border="0" alt="" title="Draper" class="inlineimg" />

He's got an ego and knows he's great, so he has a disposition that is going to rub people the wrong way.

It is a shame too because I think he's one of the most bankable on screen prospects WWE has in developmental right now. Great look, unique in ring style, believable as hell, and the charisma to get over with an audience (and based on his recent behavior, I bet he'd make a great heel too, lol).

He hasn't reached Antonio Brown levels of obnoxious yet, so hopefully it doesn't go that far, but I can't believe he's shocked he'd have heat when he acts the way he does.
