Jordan Myles had bright future in WWE, but things obviously didn’t work out. After a t-shirt was released that resembled blackface makeup and this led to him eventually quitting the company.

During a recently Twitter Q&A, Jordan Myles was asked why he thinks WWE is racist. He did not pull any punches, but he also laid everything out and explained it in a way he hasn’t done before.

“The WWE was racist to me because of the T-shirt that they produced for me. I was lied to, which really hurt my feelings the most. On top of that, if that was their image of me, what does that say about, you know, the kids, the African-American kids that watch it. Or just people in general that watch it, that felt some kind of way about that shirt, not just me. I think that that shirt was disrespectful, it was disgraceful. And on top of that, it was a slap in the face. Not only to myself, but all the viewers that look just like me. I think that that shirt was completely racist, and if you go back and you do the history, I mean yeah they’ve given titles and championships to African-Americans. But that doesn’t take away the fact that they have done things that were very insensitive to the African-American community. And I think a lot of people need to really look at that.”

We’ll have to see what is next for Jordan Myles. Odds are the next time we see him wrestle he’ll be going as ACH once again.
