Former WWE star Alex Riley: I almost died from MRSA (WARNING: Graphic photo)



UPDATE: The photo has been deleted from Riley's Instagram account.

ORIGINAL: We'd like to send best wishes to former WWE star Alex Riley. Riley noted on his Instagram page that he almost died after the MRSA strand of a staph infection was found in his blood. Riley noted that he was 24 hours of dying in his Hollywood apartment. We're glad he's ok.

Riley, who was released from his WWE contract back in May, has seemingly moved on from professional wrestling and he is now an Owner/Investor of White Lion Capital. Fans would probably remember him from his stint on the main roster as The Miz' cornerman, his color commentator role on NXT and his in-ring return in 2015. We wish him a speedy recovery.
