Tyler Breeze wasn’t happy with his spot in WWE and he wanted to leave. Then the company figured something out for him to stay. He’s in NXT now, and his passion is with his Flatbacks Wrestling School that he runs with Shawn Spears.

While speaking to Chris Van Vliet, Tyler Breeze discussed a rather difficult time in his career. Fandango was injured and WWE didn’t have anything for Tyler Breeze. He wasn’t happy and wanted to leave the company, but they made it work by sending him back to NXT.

“I was like, ‘I don’t think I wanna wrestle anymore. Like, I don’t think I want to.’ I kinda had a conversation like, ‘If you don’t need me I’m good to go. I don’t need to be here.’ It kinda got turned into, ‘Okay, we don’t really wanna see you go so let’s make this work. I mean, that’s when I made the transition down to NXT and it kinda started to reinvigorate me a little bit. I went to a couple of schools around Orlando to kinda try and get the juices flowing again because I was getting really disheartened.”

“I started to realize that wrestling wasn’t the problem, wrestling’s awesome. It’s just like when you’re in a certain spot and when you get in a certain mindset it’s hard to kick out of that and I was just in that mindset and I was just getting angry and bitter and I realized that wrestling’s not the problem.”


Tyler Breeze said that he spoke to Shawn Spears and said that he wanted to train people to wrestle. He remembers how great it was to give advice in NXT and see it play out from behind the curtain. Then they decided to start a wrestling school together and it appears that Prince Pretty is very happy with his situation once again.
