Fandango had modest success on the main roster. The salsa dance scored a win over Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 29 as well. Fandango’s last act in the WWE saw him return to NXT with Tyler Breeze.

Fandango recently appeared on Cafe de Rene with Rene Dupree for an interview. The former WWE star discussed many things, including what he believed prevented the company from firing the duo during the pandemic.

Fandango told Rene Dupree he was “too surprised” that WWE didn’t fire Breezango as part of their budget cuts during the pandemic. For those not in the know, WWE cut multiple wrestlers from the roster in 2020.

“They just completely cleaned house, and I’m like, ‘Well, this is obviously got to be it.’ Because we were kind of like lower midcard guys at the time, and we just didn’t get the axe. I think [Triple H] kind of went to bat for us.”

Fandango returned during the July 31, 2019, episode of NXT to make the save for Tyler Breeze from The Forgotten Sons. Fandango credited Vince McMahon for putting together Breezango as well.

“I think we were on the chopping block, Breeze and I, both as singles competitors in 2016. And then Vince said, ‘No, don’t fire them,’ and then they put Breeze and I together in 2016, became Breezango.”

The real-life Curtis Jonathan Hussey revealed he will be on TV soon. Fandango returned to the independent circuit following his WWE departure. Check out his interview below.
