Found this on ewrestlingnews.com

According to a source, Alex Riley's on-air association with The Miz pretty much saved him from being fired by WWE following his DUI arrest last Wednesday in Tampa, Florida. He was said to be pretty nervous for several days, however. WWE did not officially announce any punishment. Riley also worked the Survivor Series pay-per-view and Monday's RAW. Basically, he caught a lucky break.

Yeah, I read about this. Which basically means he has to stay with Miz forever because he's getting fired as soon as this partnership is over.

Sad, damn sad. He's better than Miz but he'll never catch a break.

If Alex Riley dosen't figure out that WWE is PG, it's not going to matter how close his association with The Miz is. He said "fuck" on live television this past week, and millions would have heard it had it not been for King on commentary. He almost said it last month ago in his promo with Eve, but managed to catch himself at the last minute. "Shut the f..ront door already."

Riley may be a better talker than Miz, but he certainly dosen't know how to control it. If he wants to cuss so badly, then he needs to be in TNA.

DUI is a stupid thing to do, in fact stupid doesn't begin to describe it. If he pays his dues between now and his partnership with the Miz breaking up, they might consider keeping him on, otherwise he'll be future endeavored before too long, and it'll all be his own fault.

Not to mention the promo with Eve was obviously scripted that way for him, or it was at least what he meant to do.

Thinking otherwise is ridiculous.

His fault or not, it doesn't change the fact that other people have done things that should have ruined their careers and it didn't. Randy Orton is notorious for getting into major trouble and he was given opportunities. Wade Barrett punched out a police officer and is the biggest heel in the company. Even Ted Dibiase jr got a DUI and despite not pushing him, they didn't think about firing him. Riley deserves to be extended the same courtesy. I know they didn't fire him yet, but because of his association with Miz. It's clear that they're going to.

Well for one there's a fairly good chance this story is fabricated dirt sheet bullshit. But if not, hopefully this will all blow over. The guy is extremely entertaining and has the potential to be a major player, if WWE can get past the drink-driving and random attacking of team mates. Also, for those who think he said "fucking" on Raw, re-watch the video thinking he's saying "frickin", if that makes sense. The mind is very open to suggestion when it comes to sounds.

This. It's amazing how many people on this forum have ridiculously impaired hearing.
Agreed, think its a case of peeps wanting to hear what they want and not actually listening. To be fair to Riley though, everyone makes mistakes, not sticking up for him DUI is stupid as fuck but you cant hold it against the guy for the rest of his career.

A DUI is fucked up, I'm not denying that nor am I condoning it. There's no excuse to put other lives in danger, but do i think he should get fired for it? Hell no, at the very least make him go to AA meetings or something. I think it'll blow over anyways so i'm not too concerned. however if they didn't fire RVD for being pulled over and arrested for marijuana, while he was holding the WWE title, then surely this doesn't warrant being fired.

lol @ Pyro defending the fact Riley got a DUI and not getting punished because other people didn't.

Orton and DiBiase are unfireable, we know this. They are both bland as fuck and two of the most boring "superstars" of recent years. I think Orton is the only one who could pull a Benoit and get away with it.

Riley on the other hand, is a sidekick and not needed in this pushing of younger talent when they have plenty other guys ready to take the torch and run with it.

Exactly, if they fired everyone for one mistake they would have lost many talents, people make mistakes, as long as he learns from it and doesn't do it again, only fire him if this behaviour continues.

sounds like "fckin"...but then when you hear it on loop, it sounds like "frikin"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b34bpwN0JQk

I think its frickin, because he's got that subtle southern voice....but I can see where people are coming from...regarless, whoever out there heard it will think its "fickin" so thats how it will be perceived, even if riley told management/vince that he said frickin and they agree it still wont matter because ppl will hear "fuckin"

cant belive i just went into detail about this.

Justify Wade Barrett punching out a cop in FCW and then having the incident incorporated into his FCW character at the time. (they made out that he got tazed during the incident) Riley was never getting fired. Repromanded, possibly but not fired.
