He’s not done. There are all kinds of stars in the wrestling world and several of them have wrestled with WWE at some point in their careers. Those stars are going to get more attention than almost anyone else, as the recognition from WWE is quite powerful. Now another former WWE star has returned to the ring and is ready to get back in the ring at least once more.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: He Needs Time: Big E. Offers Update On Recovery From Broken Neck

Earlier this month former WWE star Alex Riley, wrestling under his real name of Kevin Kiley Jr., returned to the ring for the first time in over six years. Kiley, 41, wrestled in a tag match for Create A Pro Wrestling in Lynbrook, New York, teaming with Tyrus to defeat Dante Drago and Jack Tomlinson. Kiley appeared on the Tyrus And Timpf podcast, where he said that he had ring rust and wanted to be in better shape, but was glad to be back in the ring. He also said that he wanted to return to the ring, though he did not say when or where this would take place.

Kiley had a lot of potential in WWE. Check out what he did in the company:

Opinion: This has me interested, as Kiley is someone who could have been a big deal in WWE but it never clicked. He was one of the more interesting “what if’s” in the last ten or so years and I would have been interested in seeing what he could have done. Odds are he isn’t going back to WWE in a major role, but a nice independent career is certainly not out of the question.

What do you think of Kiley? How could he do in a longer return to the ring? Let us know in the comments below.
