Former WWE Superstar ALMOST returned to join faction

Last updated

In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, plans change as swiftly as the tides. One such plan that never saw the light of day involved the potential return of former WWE Superstar Tyler Breeze.

The revelation of this almost-return has confirmed a lot of rumours that were rampant late last year, and here’s the inside scoop.

WWE Return for Tyler Breeze: The Backstory

Tyler Breeze, once a prominent figure in the WWE, was released from his contract on June 25th, 2021. This came as a surprise to many, especially considering his partnership with Fandango as part of the Breezango duo in NXT was actually still getting appearances.

The Revelation

Fast forward to 2023, and the wrestling community was abuzz with a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) session hosted by former Maximum Male Models, Mansoor and Mase Madden.

For those not in the know, both these wrestlers were released from their WWE contracts on September 21st, 2023. During this AMA, the duo, now wrestling under their new ring names, were quizzed about a myriad of topics. One question, in particular, stood out: their thoughts on a potential collaboration with Tyler Breeze.

The duo expressed their keen interest in working with Breeze, hinting that plans were not only in the pipeline but were also “pushed very heavily”. This revelation suggests that the fanbase was on the brink of witnessing a new alliance, one that could have reshaped the landscape of SmackDown at the time:

“We wanted to work with Breeze so badly. From what we understand it almost happened. Was pushed very heavily and nearly happened” it was confirmed.

The Current Scenario

Despite his release, Tyler Breeze remains affiliated with the company through an UpUpDownDown contract. As for Mace and Mansoor, their journey post-WWE remains to be seen.

The wrestling world is vast, and opportunities are aplenty. Only time will reveal where these talented individuals will showcase their skills next.
