It was recently reported that former WWE United States Champion Matt Riddle is currently in an ongoing lawsuit against Samantha Taver, also known as Candy Cartwright. The multi-million dollar lawsuit, which was filed by Taver against Matt Riddle, claims that Riddle allegedly sexually assaulted her. Did Matt Riddle injure this WWE Raw star?
In a follow-up to this story, Fightful reports that Riddle’s side apparently has a filler stating that Taver “demanded $ 10,000,000,000 to settle” the case out of court. However, apparently this is something Riddle did not want to consider.
Additionally, Riddle proposed the following discovery plan that was originally reported by PWInsider. The plan consists of the following points. Vince McMahon “demanded” this recent loss from Matt Riddle.
(a) Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”) will be provided in PDF or .TIFF format, unless otherwise agreed. Before making any ESI discovery, the parties will meet and consult on a list of custodians and search terms.

The full caption reads: “I declare you not guilty! Case closed. You plead not guilty! Case closed “. You can see Andrade’s full post on the former WWE Champion below.
