Back in June of 2021, WWE held another round of cuts from the company and it included several big names. This also included Fandango, who was veteran of the company. Fandango also claimed that the WWE locker room had a word atmosphere.

Fandango’s career peaked during his WrestleMania 29 match against Chris Jericho, where Jericho put him over. The company didn’t use him well after that, despite The Fashion Files being a success.

Fandango eventually made his way to Impact Wrestling, where he is now competing as Dirty Dango and having a much better time. While speaking on the K100 podcast, the former Fandango talked about his time in WWE and claimed that the WWE locker room had a weird atmosphere.

Everybody’s your friend when you’re doing dark matches. That’s what I realized, you know what I’m saying? Because he’s lovable, he’s a nice guy and then you really figure out who your real friends are when you start to get a little momentum, you know what I’m saying?


And it gets really tight, it gets real, real tight. But when the boys start b*******, then I know who the b****** are, I knew who’s insecure. So I already know that I got them thinking so, my whole thing is you think The Rock was in catering gossiping about The Godwinns or f****** Headbangers? Nothing against those guys but… and you gotta put your energy in the right places and at the time, yeah, things did get a little bit weird in the locker room (in WWE).”

Dirty Dango is set to feature at an upcoming Impact taping against Santino Marella in a singles match. It is unlikely Dirty Dango will make his return to Vince McMahon’s company anytime soon.
