Since Matt Bloom is taking over for Bill DeMott as the head trainer for WWE, some are wondering whether or not he will continue as the commentator for NXT. The announce table was already thinned out a bit earlier this week when Alex Riley decided to become an in ring performer again and work a program with heavyweight champion Kevin Owens. It would be difficult for Bloom to consult and coach the wrestlers backstage if he is commentating.

It looks like all that time being a good soldier is finally about to pay off for Alex Riley. WWE is giving him what he has been wanting for quite some time now. On the latest episode of NXT, fans witnessed him giving up his spot at the commentating table so that he could finally get revenge and get his hands on Kevin Owens, the heavyweight champion. A match between the two will take place in a couple of weeks.

Those of you that watch NXT on a regular basis already know how dominant Kevin Owens is being booked by the creative department. He's tearing through opponents at a rapid rate. Officials even put the heavyweight championship on him weeks after his debut. WWE knows that there are only so many guys on the developmental roster, so they are currently thinking about having a veteran performer like Alex Riley put him over as well.
