Alex Riley

Alex Riley has climbed the WWE ladder quicker than most, hitting nearly every rung along the way. In June 2010, he started out as an aspiring Superstar on season two of NXT. Fast forward to a year later, and he's one of WWE's top names. Along the way, the charismatic Riley made stops as an apprentice and Vice President of Corportate Communications for The Miz.

As The Miz's right-hand man, Riley's core job responobility was to ensure his employer retained the WWE Championship, most notably against John Cena at WrestleMania XXVII. But when Cena finally secured the gold from The Miz weeks later at Extreme Rules, their working relationship began to sour. Suddenly, Riley became the scapegoat for Miz's title loss.

Rather than sitting back and accepting Miz's verbal assault, Riley struck back, much to the delight of the WWE Universe. Since breaking away from The Miz, Riley has become the successful WWE Superstar many believed he could be. With a newfound confidence, he's picked up several huge victories, including one over The Miz at Capitol Punishment in June 2011.

Alex Riley Returns To The Ring

Could Alex Riley be returning permanently as a wrestler for WWE?

Alex Riley was back in action at Friday's WWE NXT live event in Citrus Springs, Florida. Details have not surfaced on his match, but here is a photo of his appearance.

Riley commented on one of the photos, saying, "No beat missed."

Outside of this show and a weekend tour for NXT in May 2014, Riley has not otherwise wrestled since becoming a commentator for WWE in June 2013. He last competed before a WWE audience on May 19, 2013, losing to Damien Sandow in a WWE Superstars match.

Since the launch of the WWE Network earlier this year, he has become known as "The Analyst" Alex Riley, and has adopted a persona similar to a sports commentator or agent. Riley is a regular member of the Raw pre-show on the WWE Network.
