Alex Riley Discusses His Rookie Year on WWE RAW & NXT

– WWE Superstar Alex Riley spoke with Slam Wrestling this week to promote tonight’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:



His rookie year on RAW:
“If somebody came to me five years ago and said you’re going to start your career on Raw with the WWE Champion, at that point I would’ve been in a bit of disbelief, I would’ve been skeptical, and then for them to say that I would help Miz in the main event of WrestleMania when he goes head-to-head with John Cena in front of 80,000 people, I would’ve thought this guy was crazy telling me these things. I’ve had an unbelievable start to my career.”

“I’m extremely happy with my rookie year in WWE. If I did change something, who’s to say it wouldn’t have gone in a completely different direction. I’m very happy to be where I am. To work with the guys I’ve gotten to work with in the WWE in my first year is just mind-blowing. I wouldn’t have worked with anyone different, I wouldn’t have changed a thing because it’s been a fantastic experience so far, in and out of the ring.”

His time on NXT:
“I thought the 13 weeks I spent on that show was just a rocket ship in the development of Alex Riley. I was put in positions on that show that I’ll probably never be put in again, or not to the degree that I was, so it was an incredible challenge.”
