Former WWE superstar Tyler Breeze has revealed he reconsidered signing the WWE contract after the original expired, saying he “didn’t want to have to sign another one.”
The 33-year-old recently appeared on the “Into The Danger Zone” podcast where talked about his time in the WWE, what led to him starting his own wrestling school with fellow NXT alum Shawn Spears (fka Tye Dillinger), and life after WWE.
“It used to be this way, when you got called up, you would sign a new main roster contract and mine was three years. And at the end of that three years, I didn’t want to have to sign another one. If I wanted to, I was gonna sign it. If, for whatever reason, I was not happy, I wasn’t enjoying myself, I was hurt, I was beat up, whatever, I didn’t want to have to sign it.”
The 1/2 of the former Breezango tag team said he ultimately made the decision to extend his contract with the WWE, adding that he knew he didn’t “want to do this forever. I want to kind of branch out.”
“And then I decided, I was like, things are going great. I will sign it again. So I signed it again, but I was almost right at that option to where I was like, ah, I could. I’m almost there. Luckily, I got years on top of that, which just kind of made it even easier.”
Breeze worked for the WWE for almost a decade. He was originally part of the company’s Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) developmental territory. Following WWE’s rebranding of FCW into NXT, Breeze performed for the brand from 2013 to 2015.
He was called to the main roster in 2015 and was paired with another NXT alumnus Fandango. Together, they became known as “Breezango,” later renamed as “The Fashion Police.” Breeze returned to NXT in 2019 and worked for the black and gold brand until his release in 2021.
