OTTAWA, Ontario – When he broke away from his mentor The Miz to forge his own path months ago, Alex Riley made it abundantly clear to the WWE Universe that he would bow to the will of others no longer. It’s such determined attitude that all but guaranteed this confident young Superstar would one day seize championship glory – a seeming impossibility while he was in the employ of The Awesome One.
That day has arrived.
This Sunday at Night of Champions, A-Ry battles John Morrison, Jack Swagger and U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler in a Fatal 4-Way Match, one of the most chaotic encounters WWE has to offer. Speaking with WWE.com just moments after the bout was made official by SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long, Riley did little to downplay the importance of his U.S. Title opportunity. “I have one focus that night, and that’s winning the title,” Riley said. “I’m in there with three guys who have all held titles before. I never have. I don’t plan on leaving Night of Champions without it, and Buffalo, N.Y., is gonna go ‘A-Ry’ that night.”
The Prince of Parkour boasts multiple Intercontinental and WWE Tag Team Championship reigns, while Swagger and Ziggler each have World Heavyweight Title victories to their credit. However, given the tension between Ziggler and The All-American American over the managerial services of Vickie Guerrero, going up against two previous World Title holders doesn’t faze the former season two NXT Rookie.
Alex Riley: 78 overall
“I’m a 78 in the game and The Miz is a 90. I’m never going to hear the end of that one. I’m sure he’s going to bring this up enough times to where I’m really going to want to punch him in the face. I’m assuming my numbers will improve over the next few years, though. I know I have to earn my ratings, and that’s okay because I’m a fighter. I’m an underdog kind of guy. It’s surreal to me to even be in the game. I was a video game guy growing up. I loved games like ‘John Madden Football’ and ‘Contra,’ So to me, being in a video game is a payoff for all of my hard work.”
