Cassidy Riley (born November 21, 1976), is an American professional wrestler formerly signed to WWE.
Professional wrestling career
The team of O'Reilly and Paris was split when Paris was signed by World Championship Wrestling.
O'Reilly began working for Bert Prentice's USA Championship Wrestling promotion, and in 2000 WCW began a talent exchange programme with Prentice which saw WCW wrestlers train in Nashville while Prentice's employees would work for WCW. O'Reilly worked for WCW for a year and a half, until the promotion was bought by the WWF in March 2001. Along with wrestlers such as James Storm and Chris Harris, O'Reilly was part of "R & B Security", a group of jobbers who were billed as the bodyguards of Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff. They would be involved in one-sided confrontations with bigger stars on Nitro and Thunder, and would wrestle one another on Worldwide and Saturday Night. O'Reilly also made an appearance on the big stage during the opening segment of the Mike Awesome and DDP match at the WCW Great American Bash 2000 PPV as a medic in the back of the ambulance.
O'Reilly made his first appearance on WWE television as a jobber on the ECW brand where, as Cassidy Riley, he was defeated by fellow alumnus Marcus Cor Von on January 16, 2007. Two nights later, it was announced that he had signed a developmental contract with WWE and would be reporting to Ohio Valley Wrestling. On March 20, 2007, O'Reilly was on ECW again, he lost to Snitsky. On May 5, 2007 O'Reilly appeared in his first OVW match as his new gimmick as Kassidy James, the little brother of OVW/WWE wrestler K.C. James.
On June 29, 2007 The James Boys defeated the Major Brothers to re-capture the OVW Southern Tag Team Championships. They then lost the belts on August 1 to the team of T.J. Dalton and Jamin Olivencia. On August 24, they regained the titles, defeating Olivencia in a handicap match. After again losing the titles to Steve Lewington and Chet the Jet on September 5, they regained the titles for the fourth time three weeks later.
