Arn Anderson confims Alex Riley’s WWE push ended after an issue with John Cena

This week on the “ARN” podcast, Arn Anderson and Conrad Thompson take a look back at the Night of Champions 2010 pay-per-view, which took place at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL.

Arn and Conrad talk about all of the news that was happening around that time and they cover the entire card including the Six-Pack Elimination Match for the WWE Championship, Kane vs. The Undertaker in a No Holds Barred Match, Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz for the United States Championship and much more.

Here are some highlights from the show:

Arn gave his explanation of what happened to Alex Riley’s career in WWE: “I think Alex had a good look. I think his work was ok. He’s seemed to gel well when they put him with The Miz. But there’s a famous story that he was offered some help from John Cena and he seemed less than enthused or interested which would have immediately made it’s way back to the locker room and to the office. I’m sure it was around that time that his water got cut off.”

Arn told us why Serena Deeb was let go by WWE in 2010 in the middle of the Straight Edge Society push: “Well, there was a rumor that something happened in L.A. that there was some episode that involved alcohol. If you have a straight edge gimmick, there is really no gray area there. It’s either-or. It’s not, well I’ll have a couple occasionally. That was one of the times that they put their foot down and said you can’t be straight edge and not be straight edge. But, my dealings with her was she was a tremendous talent, very coachable and a nice person. She just made a mistake.”
