Source: PWInsider- Once a promising talent in WWE's midcard scene, Alex Riley's role in the company has been greatly curtailed since last year. According to PWInsider.com, the Raw Superstar is in the doghouse stemming from a hostile backstage encounter with John Cena.
Cena was reportedly poking fun at Riley in front of their wrestler peers, and in response, the Raw talent angrily reacted to Cena's "rib"—a violation of the unspoken rules of the WWE locker room. Though Riley's exact actions are not known at this time, his unfavorable reaction to WWE's cherished star was not considered a good move.
Kenn Doane, who appeared as Kenny of the Spirit Squad and Kenny Dykstra for WWE from 2006 to 2008, weighed in on the matter after claiming last month that Cena's backstage politics sabotaged his once promising grappling career.
He tweeted, "Cena acts stupid to riley, riley calls him on it, loses push. This must be a lie! Lmao #ibelieve."
- Accomplished international wrestler Prince Devitt turns 31 years old on Wednesday while former WWE Tag Team Champion Kenzo Suzuki turns 38.
