Alex Riley Forced In To Commentary

In a recent interview with Wrestling Compadres Slamcast Alex Riley discussed his recent injury and how he was forced to do commentary despite having a passion for wrestling:

When they had taken this from me and for whatever reason I was doing the commentary, and, again, certainly a good opportunity to do it, but do I think I should have been in the ring [instead]? 100%. Did it feel like a cage? Yes. In the regard that I was sitting there every single Monday night watching people out there that I felt that I was better than, but I couldn’t get in there. I’m sitting there every night talking about people, telling people how great they were or how great they are and how bad I was and that’s B.S.

When I come back, I promise you, I’m going for it. Now whether I become WWE [World Heavyweight] Champion or I’m in NXT for the next three years, regardless of where I am or where I’m placed, I’m swinging for the fence, so it’s going to make a loud noise and I’m sure you guys are going to hear it, but I have no more, I don’t want to say I have no more fear because I certainly fear things, but very little. Very little at this point.

WWE Enforcing Medical Insurance Policy is reporting that WWE are starting to carry out checks to ensure their talent have their own medical insurance. This has been a policy since 2011 however it’s possible some talent have slipped through the net and that’s why random checks are being done.

If it’s found that a wrestler doesn’t have insurance or it’s not adequate, they will not be allowed to wrestle.

Despite this WWE does cover all medical costs themselves.
