Last December, former WWE star Alex Riley came out of retirement for his first match in six years at the Create-A-Pro Holiday Toy Drive show. Now Riley, under his real name of Kevin Kiley, has been announced for the NWA “Nuff Said” show on February 11, where he will face EC3. This will be Riley’s first televised match since the May 11, 2016 edition of NXT. Riley, 41 years old, said after the December match that he was considering resuming his wrestling career.
EC3 is an interesting addition to any #wrestling show. But perhaps even more intriguing is what happens when he meets his former(?) friend, a debuting Kevin Kiley!

Riley had a lot of potential. Check out his time in WWE:
Opinion: Riley is one of the more interesting “what if’s” in the last few years, as he always felt like someone who could move up to the next level if given a chance. He had a good look and the in-ring abilities to back it up but never got the chance to really break out. It does not seem likely now, but at least he is getting a chance to shine on a stage where people can see him.
What do you think of Riley’s comeback? Who would you like to see him face? Let us know in the comments below.
