-- As reported earlier today, Alex Riley was on WWE TV quite often a year ago after turning on The Miz and starting a singles run. He has since been appearing less and less and usually not booked well. There are times when he works Superstars matches but for the most part, he has not been featured.
According to Pwinsider, the push was reportedly ended because of an incident with John Cena several months ago. One sources notes Cena was ribbing Riley in front of other wrestlers and Riley became upset. When he reacted in an angry manner, this was looked at as "breaking the locker room code" among the wrestlers.
Kenn "Kenny Dystra" Doane, who was a member of the Spirit Squad group in WWE from 2006 to 2008, tweeted the following regarding John Cena's backstage politics:
"Cena acts stupid to riley, riley calls him on it, loses push. This must be a lie! Lmao #ibelieve."
