Both were mixed martial artists and competed for the Ultimate Fighting Championships. Severn wrestled for the WWE, while Riddle has been making waves in wrestling after leaving the octagon for the ring.
“We are trying to do something out of the box,” promoter and wrestler Joey Janela said. “Something completely different from every other show in Orlando. As soon as the opportunity came up to have a show at midnight we were like how can we make this work? We tried contacting Ken Shamrock and he was asking for a Bellator payday. I don’t think he is worth what he is asking these days. Then we contacted Low Ki and he said a show at midnight wouldn’t draw. The last person was Dan Severn and he might beat Matt Riddle like his stepson that night.”

Janela, who will be taking on WWE veteran Marty Jannetty, says Severn and Riddle could go the extra mile.
“They are saying back and forth its going to be the real deal,” he said. “Dan Severn is a different person. He thinks he is coming for a fight. He is driving from Michigan. He is an original road warrior. He refused a flight.”
