WWE has a lot of Superstars, but they have to draw the line somewhere. For some reason, they rejected Chuck Taylor and he’s not shy about revealing exactly what was said in that correspondence.
Johnny Gargano tweeted out about how he was turned down by WWE and he still has that rejection letter. This prompted AEW star Chuck Taylor to reply with a screenshot from his own rejection letter that he received from WWE.
In a revealing post, Johnny Wrestling said:
I still have my rejection email from my @WWE tryout back in 2015.
I look at it from time to time to remind myself how far I’ve come and why any of this happened to begin with.
I didn’t take “no” for an answer. I fought for a chance..
But I couldn’t do this by myself..
Chuckie T replied saying: “Me too” along with a screenshot of the exact letter that he received from WWE telling him that they have no use for him right now.
“I hope you are well. I wanted to follow-up per our conversation at the end of your tryout. WWE does not have an opportunity for you in our developmental system. Future opportunities may be available in the form of a ‘Rhyno’ type loop/shot, as the NXT TV and touring brand evolves. Please keep me updated on your contract status, so we know if you are available for such opportunities. Thanks again for your effort and professionalism at the tryout, it was noticed and appreciated. Regards, Canyon Ceman.”
It’s unclear if Taylor actually kept Canyon Ceman up to date on what his availability was. It is a moot point because now Taylor and his Best Friends partner Trent Beretta are both signed to AEW.
We can’t help but wonder how different things would have been if he had received a different response from WWE.
