WWE has a lot of opportunities available for former Superstars. That being said, X-Pac isn’t game to take on a creative gig.
Bryan Danielson, Edge and others have tried their hand at WWE’s creative team. Some saw a variety of good ideas in those roles. Sean Waltman is not down to take on this role, no matter how much they might want him.
Sean Waltman spoke on the subject during K&S Wrestle Fest. He made it clear that there is no way that he would be down to take that high-pressure gig in the writers’ room.
“If they asked me, ‘Hey man, we could really use your help with this,’ I wouldn’t say no, but I just don’t see where I’m this f*cking creative genius that’s going to go in there and, you know, bring some revolution.”
“That was me, personally, I was that way years ago, but that was years ago, man. Like, we need young people, we need young, fresh minds that know what the f*ck – what’s hip. Like, I learn from young people … I like to think I’m self-aware enough to know I’m not [ready for that]. I can help with things, but here’s the thing, man, I have a really nice balance in my life right now, and I have a nice relationship with WWE and f*cking everyone for that matter, as far as I’m concerned, and I don’t want to f*ck that up.”
Triple H tried to get Shawn Michaels to take a job with WWE for years. HBK didn’t want to leave his Texas home, but he finally traded his scenery in for Orlando. Only time will tell if Shawn Waltman might be in the same boat one day, but he seems pretty happy where he is.
