WWE has been released several Superstars and members of staff since April of this year. Since then fans have been dreading the possibility of more releases in the company.
Unfortunately, that is exactly what happened as several NXT Superstars were released recently and among them included veteran names such as Tyler Breeze, who had been with WWE since 2010.
Tyler Breeze finally opened up about his release from WWE as he spoke on his Twitch channel “The Sweetz” when asked by a fan whether Breeze was surprised by the release. Breeze stated that he was always prepared to get fired by the company since the day Breeze was hired.
“I was with the company for 11 years; I’ve been wrestling for like 14. So, on an 11-year run in the biggest wrestling company in the world is like unheard of, you know what I mean? It’s a huge thing. Most people are only in WWE for like three to five years. So the fact that I was there for 11, fantastic! More than I could ever ask for. So, I mean I don’t know if you’re ever like expecting, but I mean from definitely like the rumblings and stuff that have been happening, I was like, ‘Yeah, I mean it could happen,’ you know what I mean, but at the same time, like if it happened. Sure. But if it didn’t happen, then cool, you know, I mean like, just kinda how it goes. The thing too, especially for me, is like I’ve been preparing to get fired since the day I got hired.”
Tyler Breeze was one of the mainstays of NXT and he was also part of the popular tag team Breezango with Fandango and there is no doubt Breeze will be a huge asset wherever he goes next.
