It's not over until Riley leaves the business for good.
Riley and Cena may or may not have had some altercation, but it happened a long time ago, and they're probably buddies. John Cena has better things to do with his time than sabotage young stars' careers.
To be fair, HHH was already set to win King of the Ring before the Curtain Call so he already had an established push in the making. Riley isn't afforded that, unfortunately.
Riley could be a huge face for the WWE, but his in-ring ability is still a major limitation.
