Ever since Lars Sullivan made his televised debut in 2017, fans and WWE officials had high hopes for him. In fact, his promotion to the main roster was fast-tracked. However, his push came to a screeching halt when it was revealed that Lars Sullivan performed in homosexual pornographic films under the name Mitch Bennett years prior to joining WWE.

WWE veteran Road Dogg stated in a recent episode of the Oh You Didn’t Know podcast that he believes that it was Vince McMahon’s pressure that caused Lars Sullivan to quit wrestling.

“Oh, Dexter Lumis, Dexter Lumis is a great guy. I didn’t get to know Lars that well, to be quite honest with you. Look, I thought he was, I thought Lars was going to be something special in this industry, a good guy when I met him, respectful. I don’t want to use the word in a derogatory way but freak of nature, like he’s, he has, I don’t know what it’s called, but gigantism or whatever. But so he was probably six, two or three, but 320 pounds of solid muscle like man, you know what I mean? Like it was incredible.

And so I just thought oh, this guy is going to be somebody, Vince thought the same thing. I think it put too much pressure on the kid and he kind of backed out of it all. You know what I mean? And so I don’t know but I thought, I thought he’s gonna be somebody. And the other kid is somebody who just beat Miz, and won about 12 grand the other night in a ladder match on Monday Night Raw,” Road Dogg said.


Following his departure from WWE, Lars Sullivan hasn’t wrestled a match. In fact, he stated in an interview with Fightful that he is “likely done” with professional wrestling. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more coverage of such stories.
