To me, the WWE's Capital Punishment PPV is very intriguing. It has matches that last year, I wouldn't have seen coming. John Cena vs R-Truth stands out to many, but to me The Miz taking on Alex Riley is a huge match that no one seems to be talking about.
Riley is on the rise and he has yet to really do a lot in the WWE, while the Miz is a multi-time tag team champion as well as a former US Champion and WWE Champion.
Riley was an NXT rookie who was mentored by Miz. Riley lost the competition to Kaval. But that didn't keep him off TV, as The Miz put him under an associate's contract. Riley carried around a briefcase for a year, and was with Miz for his run as a WWE Champion.
I thought this rivalry could come, but never actually thought it would happen. I just figured Riley would branch off on his own as a heel somehow. But WWE decided to go face with him, and it could be a big step in his career.
But, does that mean he should beat Miz at Capital Punishment? I don't think so, and here are the top 5 reasons why.
