6 Confessions WWE Superstars made after their release
Getting into WWE is one of the biggest dreams of almost every professional wrestler out there. The Superstars competing in the company today have worked hard for several years and some even failed many tryouts before coming back and not giving up.
However, getting released by WWE can be extremely heartbreaking for Superstars as it can show that they failed to achieve what they dreamt of achieving. While many Superstars have taken a release in their stride and have come back to the company to reach new heights, others have struggled to do the same.
Superstars usually take to social media following their release or appear in interviews to talk about what went wrong. Several former Superstars have also revealed some interesting details following their release from the company.
With that as the focus of this article, let’s take a look at the six WWE Superstars who made confessions following their release from the company.
#6 WWE writers possibly did not like working with Austin Aries
Just like AJ Styles, Austin Aries was seen as a top wrestler whom fans loved to see wrestle in WWE. The former TNA World Champion finally joined WWE in January 2016, and many fans were glad to see him appear in the biggest wrestling entertainment promotion.
Aries tried to join WWE on several occasions earlier but failed to do so. He even auditioned for WWE during the 2011 Tough Enough competition. The Superstar had a brief run in Vince McMahon’s promotion but was released just 18 months later.
Rumors began to spread that Aries was difficult to work with, and therefore WWE decided to part ways with him. Following his release, Aries was on a media conference call where he revealed that WWE creative might have found it difficult to work with him.
Aries surprisingly revealed that even a wrestling veteran like him did not have creative freedom in WWE. He spoke about how it was difficult for the writers to change the script for him and get approval from the higher-ups.
#5 Simon Gotch was unhappy during his time in WWE
Simon Gotch joined WWE in 2013 and formed a tag team with Aiden English known as The Vaudevillains. After winning the NXT Tag Team Championships, the two Superstars were moved to the main roster.
Gotch did not enjoy his time on the main roster and confessed the following after he was released by the company in April 2017.
“I was really unhappy. I’d actually been pretty unhappy there for a while. It’s kind of an odd little side story – the previous year, right after the takeover they did in Dallas, which myself and my former tag team partner Aiden English weren’t even on the live special from Dallas.
“And I’d always been really close with Biff Busick or Oney Lorcan as he’s now known, and he walked by and said ‘Hey man, how are you doing,’ and I just looked at him and said ‘I f–king hate this place. I want to quit.’”
Gotch’s confession after his release showed that even after reaching the top wrestling company in the world, the Superstar was unhappy. Gotch has since been performing on the independent circuit following his release from WWE.
