Former WWE superstar Alex Riley has launched a series of posts directed at both John Cena and The Rock, as well as the lack of a Wrestling Union.
Riley, who has previously blamed Cena for his WWE career faltering, took to his Instagram page to lambast Cena for his lack of support of a potential union. Whilst also heralding SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists), which is a union based group in America representing film, media etc.
Riley who refers to himself as “The Elemental One” had this to say to Cena in his first post:
“You I – The first ever “Sports Entertainment Union Match” #SeeMe @johncena you have no choice
“I believe it is very clear which side I have always stood on and the one you are now forced to”
– The Elemental One
This would be just the first of five posts from Alex Riley, with the next four remaining focused on Cena, whilst also taking aim at The Rock. The key quotes from the four posts are as follows:
Post 1: “If @johncena cares or ever cared about the future of this business or anyone in it he will meet me in the ring for “the truth.”
Post 2:” “Game Over” @the rock @johncena make your choice. I have made mine.”
Post 3: “I will not return to @wwein any way until #SportsEntertainmentis unionized. All of it. Let me be the first “retired superstar” in the history of that company to ever make this claim.
Let this be the proof to all of you I loved that business more than any of you ever did @[email protected] and all “top guys” included.”
Post 4: “Unionize #SportsEntertainment and I promise you the day after I will walk straight Into a @wwe ring and smack this man [Cena] in the mouth “face-to-face” harder than he ever hit me “with my back turned”
“this man [Cena] ran to Vince McMahon complaining about every little bump and bruise he ever got..” “
