Bei den dieswöchigen Tapings für "WWE Superstars" hat Alex Riley (einst Protegé von The Miz) den Platz von Matt Striker als Co-Kommentator eingenommen.
Matt Striker äußerte sich positiv, als er davon erfuhr:
"He's a good kid. He's a taller better looking version of Matt Striker. I believe he's a graduate from Boston College, he's well spoken, he's bright and i think its a great opportunity for Alex Riley. To me, this is what is my saving grace i'm gone now and then i read that it's Alex Riley that sitting in that chair and i think about all the conversations I've had with Alex Riley, maybe one thing i said to him he uses on the show and he's now the breath of fresh air, he's now the new guy, i don't fault anyone for that. WWE gives opportunity, they gave me an opportunity, their giving Alex Riley an opportunity and i expect great things for Alex Riley and i'm genuinely happy for him"
