WATCH: NXT Wrestler Matt Riddle Tackles Rays Mascot Raymond With Nasty Cross-Body Splash! That's messed up...
VIA 12up: What a day it was for the Tampa Bay Rays' mascot, Raymond. Not only did he see his team take down the Marlins 7-2, but he also got a chance to meet NXT superstar Matt Riddle. After throwing out the ceremonial first pitch, Riddle gave Raymond one of the craziest greetings you'll ever see.
Riddle tossed out a solid first pitch and followed it up by a perfect take down. That nasty cross-body clearly took Raymond by surprise, who didn't even try and defend himself.
The 33-year-old wrestler competes in the WWE's "Next Generation," otherwise known as NXT. This sub-genre of the sport showcases WWE superstars mentoring rookies, and he's clearly on his way up with that nasty move.
