A year ago Alex Riley found himself on television weekly and was getting a fairly large push after breaking away from being The Miz's apprentice.
In the fall, Riley began appearing on television less and less. When he did appear, he would not be booked in a favorable way.
PWInsider.com is reporting the push got halted due to an incident with John Cena. Reportedly, Cena was ribbing Riley in front of other wrestlers and Riley came back at Cena very angrily. When Riley reacted this way, it was viewed by many as him breaking the locker room code and nature among the boys.
