As per a report, Riddle has a child custody agreement with his ex-wife Lisa, where his “routine” WWE wellness policy lab tests would be sent directly to her. On June 3rd, she moved to hold Matt in contempt of court because he had not complied with these terms.

While there was a hearing on this in November, the case’s court docket has not been updated as of yet. Riddle did hop on to Twitter the next day, noting it was a “rough day”.

It’s been reported that Riddle failed his second WWE Wellness Policy test and was suspended. If he is in rehab, he’s likely in the best place to get the help he needs.

The following year, Miz moved up to Ohio Valley Wrestling. By the time the summer hit in 2006, he was on SmackDown.
