8. Alex Riley On His Oh Crap Moment In WWE, His Relationship With Vince McMahon & Triple H

During a recent edition of the X-Pac 12360 show, former WWE wrestler Alex Riley talked about his time in the WWE, his relationship with Vince McMahon and Triple H & more. Below are the highlights:

On his “oh crap” moment in WWE:
“I’m in my suit going over the script and a producer told me “You need to change your suit, we need to get this pre-taped done now”…and I’m was like “Are you kidding me, the show goes on in 10mins.” He goes “No, we have to get this done now.” So, then I go through a double panic & you just do what you’re told. I need to at least be able to switch gears in my mind to what’s on the script. As to oppose what’s happening in this pre-taped. The guy goes “You’ll be fine, we have to get this done.” We go live and they literally end it, the pre-tape was done and I sprint to the gorilla position, grabbed a mic and walked out and it worked out okay.”

On his relationship with Vince McMahon & Triple H:
“Vince McMahon, Triple H…they were straight. They were straight shooters and I always loved when somebody would say ‘we’re just not gonna do it right now and sorry’ rather than bullsh***ing me and they never did. I heard and I kinda got the feeling that Vince was always a pretty big supporter of mine, so hey what a compliment to have. And I hope I am making them very proud right now.”

On if he would have stayed with WWE or not:

“I don’t know. Because I would’ve been torn. I really really love that job, but WWE is very in this way…they own you. They would’ve owned me, I don’t think I would have been allowed opportunities to do anything else.”
