Matt Striker comments on Alex Riley as a potential replacement



From Gary Cantrell:

I just interviewed Matt Striker, would you be able to post this on your site?

Matt Striker was a guest on The Shoot radio show on June 25th. To hear the full 20 minute interview please visit http://theshoot.podomatic.com/entry/2013-06-25T15_00_55-07_00 For more on The Shoot please visit TheShootOnline.com

On Alex Riley as a potential replacement:

“He’s a good kid. He’s a taller better looking version of Matt Striker. I believe he’s a graduate from Boston College, he’s well spoken, he’s bright and i think its a great opportunity for Alex Riley. To me, this is what is my saving grace i’m gone now and then i read that it’s Alex Riley that sitting in that chair and i think about all the conversations I’ve had with Alex Riley, maybe one thing i said to him he uses on the show and he’s now the breath of fresh air, he’s now the new guy, i don’t fault anyone for that. WWE gives opportunity, they gave me an opportunity, their giving Alex Riley an opportunity and i expect great things for Alex Riley and i’m genuinely happy for him”

Issues when he first got to WWE:

“When i first came to the WWE, i did not wear humility well. I think people mistook my New York-ness and my excitement for arrogance and i am glad that that happened, i’m glad that some of these battle tested veterans sat me down in their way and said hey man i slept in a car, wrestled for $5 and did all these things so that a kid like you could walk in here right now and once i started to realize that i began to adopt the same theories and mentality.”

Also in the interview he talks about how he handled his release, how he interacts with others, and a whole lot more!

    While I’m sad that Striker is gone, I’m glad they’re finally doing something with Riley again. He seems like he has a lot to offer.
