Things are still very much up in the air for Alex Riley right now. As many of you already know, he is quite upset with WWE for pulling the rug on his return to the ring at the Royal Rumble. However, a release from his contract has yet to be granted. Management also does not appear to have much interest in him returning full time as an in ring performer. His broadcasting duties have been relieved by the returning David Otunga already.

There have been questions and speculations floating around about the status of Alex Riley in WWE. The belief is that he wants out of his contract and out of the company to pursue other opportunities in professional wrestling. Things became even cloudier yesterday when David Otunga was brought in to replace Riley on the Monday Night Raw kickoff show. Otunga has been off the road for quite some time now and is rarely used by the company.

Since he is still young and has a bit of a following from his days as an on screen performer for WWE, the belief is that TNA would definitely be interested in offering Alex Riley a contract once he receives his rumored release. The latter company is no longer under a hiring freeze since they signed a long term deal with Destination America. They would love to add a couple of more recognizable faces, and Riley would not be as expensive as other free agents.
