World Wrestling EntertainmentEdit
Florida Championship Wrestling (2007–present)Edit
In 2007, Kiley signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and was assigned to their developement territory, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). On October 30, 2007, he debuted in a losing effort to Shawn Osbourne under his real name Kevin Kiley, and later faced off with wrestlers like Sebation Slater and Jack Gabriel.
In September 2008, he changed his ring name to Carson Oakley. As Oakley he began teaming with Scotty Golman, and the pairing unsuccessfully challenged TJ Wilsonand David Hart Smith for the FCW Florida Tag Team Championships in November. In early, he underwent another name change, calling himself Alex Riley and developing the gimmick of a university jock, wearing a Letterman's jacket to the ring. He gained Beverly Mullins as a manager, and to fit with his jock gimmick, Mullins adopted the gimmick of a prom queen.
In 2009, he joined FCW General Manager Abraham Washington 's cabinet, being called Washington's "top draft pick", and as a result, was named the number one contender to Tyler Rek's FCW Florida Heavyweight Champonship in July. In August, he lost in a triple threat match including Reks and Johnny Curtis. In mid-2009, he competed in several dark matches prior to Raw and Smackdown, wrestling against Jamie Noble, MVP and Jimmy Wang Yang, and also appeared at house show. On the August 30 episode of FCW, Riley dropped Mullins as his manager, calling her "dead weight".
On March 18, 2010, Riley defeated Justin Gabriel and Wade Barrett in a triple threat match to win the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship. After his title win he called out Barrett and paid him for his services as a hired help. At the July 22 FCW tapings, Riley lost the title to Mason Ryani n a triple threat match, also involving Johnny Curtis.
NXT and Raw (2010)Edit
On June 1, 2010, The Miz announced that he would be mentoring Riley for the second season of WWE NXT. He made his NXT debut on the June 8 episode, but did not compete in a match. He made his in-ring debut on the following edition of NXT, defeating Kaval. Kaval returned the favor two weeks later, by pinning Riley in a six-man tag team match. Later that night, Riley was ranked fourth in the first poll. In the second poll on the July 27 episode of NXT, Riley moved up to third place, behind Michael Mcgillicutty and Kaval. On August 9 the rookies appeared in a six-man tag team match on Raw, in which Riley teamed with Husky Harris and Michael McGillicutty to defeat Lucky Cannon, Kaval and Percy Watson. The following night however, Riley's team lost a rematch, and he slipped to fifth place in the poll, narrowly avoiding elimination. Riley was eliminated from NXT in the season finale on August 31, ending up in third place overall. After Kaval was announced as the winner, Riley and the other eliminated rookies attacked him.
He appeared on the September 6 of Raw, when he tried to help his mentor The Miz, who had been placed in the LeBell Lock submission hold by Daniel Byan but ended up being placed in the hold himself. He appeared again the following week, replacing The Miz in a submission match against Bryan, but lost. On the September 20 episode of Raw The Miz announced that he had signed Riley to a 'personal services contract', allowing Riley to accompany The Miz to ringside and continue to appear on Raw. He accompanied him during Bragging Rights to the elimination match. He got involved in the match in an attempt to help The Miz but the match was won by Team SmackDown. At WWE TLC, Riley got put threw a table by Randy Orton. In February-March 2011, Riley was in a steel cage match against Cena, and if he lost he would have to get fired by The Miz, and if Cena lost, Cena would have to say that Miz is awesome. John Cena won, deespite many interferences and attempts to stop Cena winning. Since then Riley has been appearing at house shows , but in the storyline, he is currently jobless but in real life he competes at Raw house shows. He probably will return to Raw but he currently is not on the Raw Wrestling roster, although March 14 2011, Riley appeared on Raw and the went away again. He accompanied The Miz to his match at WrestleManiaXXVII against Cena where he interfered several times, throwing Cena into an exposed turnbuckle, attacking him with his briefcase, and distracting the Referee.
Single Competition (2011-present)Edit
As part of the 2011 Supplement Draft 2011 on April 26, Riley was moved to the Smackdown brand, separating him from The Miz. He debuted on the April 29 episode of SmackDown, interrupting Randy Orton but having an RKO performed on him before he could speak. This was his only appearance on the brand since he was drafted as he moved back on the Raw brand on May 30, 2011. Despite being drafted, Riley continued to appear on Raw, alongside The Miz. On the May 2 episode of Raw, The Miz chastised Riley for not being present at Extreme Rules the previous night, when The Miz lost the WWE Championship to Cena. Riley appeared alongside The Miz at the Over the Limit 2011 pay-per-view, where he attempted to help The Miz win his "I Quit" match against Cena, but The Miz was unsuccessful and failed to regain the WWE Championship. The following night on Raw, The Miz fired Riley, blaming him for his lack of success in regaining the WWE Championship. After being slapped by The Miz, Riley attacked him before leaving and "Riley" chants were heard throughout the arena, seemingly turning him face. On the May 30th, 2011 edition of RAW, Michael Cole interviewed Riley. Cole recalled what happened the previous week of Riley's assault to The Miz and demanded an apology. Riley then assaulted Cole and The Miz attacked Riley from behind, however Riley gained the upper hand and Miz escaped through the crowd, establishing Riley's face status. On that same show, the Anonymous Raw General Manager re-hired him back to Raw thus moving him back to the brand.
