Matt-Striker

The Shoot radio show interviewed Matt Striker earlier today. Here are some highlights.

Alex Riley as a potential replacement: “He’s a good kid. He’s a taller better looking version of Matt Striker. I believe he’s a graduate from Boston College, he’s well spoken, he’s bright and i think its a great opportunity for Alex Riley. To me, this is what is my saving grace i’m gone now and then i read that it’s Alex Riley that sitting in that chair and i think about all the conversations I’ve had with Alex Riley, maybe one thing i said to him he uses on the show and he’s now the breath of fresh air, he’s now the new guy, i don’t fault anyone for that. WWE gives opportunity, they gave me an opportunity, their giving Alex Riley an opportunity and i expect great things for Alex Riley and i’m genuinely happy for him”

Issues when he first got to WWE: “When i first came to the WWE, i did not wear humility well. I think people mistook my New York-ness and my excitement for arrogance and i am glad that that happened, i’m glad that some of these battle tested veterans sat me down in their way and said hey man i slept in a car, wrestled for $5 and did all these things so that a kid like you could walk in here right now and once i started to realize that i began to adopt the same theories and mentality.”

Striker also discussed how he handled his release, how he interacts with others and more.
