"I don't know, it's a very competitive company," Riley replied. "There's a lot of people here and a lot of talent. So you have to constantly re-invent yourself and constantly be entertaining on a daily basis and find new ways to entertain and I'm trying to do that... I was shoved into a main event spot very early in my career, which I don't think a lot of people quite get that opportunity, so I was very lucky to get that opportunity. I wanna earn it, a lot of that had to do with Miz, so when I come back this time it's going to be all me and I want to earn it."
