While speaking to The Post and Courier, Jay Lethal was asked on why he’s not in WWE and revealed that he wouldn’t be too upset if he eventually didn’t get hired by the company.
“It’s funny. When I got into the wrestling business, all I wanted to do was wrestle for WWE. That was a major goal for everyone from my generation. I’m not saying that’s something that I would not want to do, but along the way I sort of re-prioritized some things. With that said, if I never got to work for WWE, I wouldn’t be too upset. I wouldn’t feel that my career wasn’t complete. I think that I’ve made it. And that’s something that a lot of wrestlers struggle with.”
Lethal also talked about being fired by rival promotion Impact Wrestling and not really given a reason for his departure from that company.
“I never ever really got the full true story. Just one day they called and said they were going to have to release me. I’ve heard several different stories. I heard Dixie’s parents came in and cut the budget and got rid of me. I heard three other stories, but when it comes down to it, I guess Dixie owned the company at the time. Nothing can happen without crossing her desk. So I guess the idea came up to get rid of me, and she signed off on it. I really don’t know what else to say.”
