Former WWE Superstar Tyler Breeze has released his first public statement since being released from WWE late last week.
The company had another round of releases on Friday June 25, although these were focused on NXT and 205 Live rather than the RAW and SmackDown rosters as has been the case over the past few months.
Breeze spoke to SweetzLive on TwitchÂ on his 11 year tenure with the company and what the future holds for the former NXT Superstar.
“I was with the company for eleven years” Tyler Breeze began. “An eleven year run in the biggest wrestling company in the world is a huge thing. Most people are there for three or four years. The fact that I was there for 11, fantastic, more than I could ask for.”
“I don’t know if you’re ever expecting, but from the rumblings, I was like, ‘Yeah, it could happen'” Breeze continued, discussing the recent litany of releases from WWE.
“I’ve been preparing to get fired since the day I got hired. That’s how you have to think about it. You have to prepare yourself for the worst case scenario” Breeze added.
Arguably the biggest accomplishment of Tyler Breeze’s WWE career came when he was chosen to face Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger at NXT Takeover.
Liger only ever had one match for WWE, and this was it. Tyler Breeze seemed to be heading towards a main event slot on the main roster, however it just seemed to fizzle out like many do when they move up from the gold brand.
