Back in November, Jordan Myles, now ACH was released by WWE. The NXT Superstar "quit" the company one week prior after calling the wrestling behemoth racist after they released a t-shirt for his character which used imagery commonly associated with blackface.
ACH sat down with Submission Squad Presents: Dollar Menu Midcarders for his first interview since quitting the company. The Last Dragon was remorseful about how he handled the situation but he admitted he was just so angry about the t-shirt WWE produced.
He said: "I was having the time of my life there, dude, I really was. I enjoyed my time there, I really did, but then when they released that shirt, it's when I got angry and then I made a lot of comments that I'm not gonna take back because that's just how I feel. Now, could I have said them a lot better? Absolutely. Absolutely. I said a lot of things out of anger… If I could have said those things a little bit more intelligently and calmly and came from a real place and not an angry place, I think it would have been okay but the fact that I was just so angry and mad and disrespected, and I just felt like a joke… I don't hold too many grudges but that s**t really p****d me off, man, it made me mad, man."
He later added: "Being attacked by people you don't know, coming from all angles, all cities, states, countries, telling you you're wrong, it's like f**k dude. It broke me. It really rocked me to my core, and I wish I could have did things differently. I wish I would have just turned my phone off and let things die down... I honestly wish I could have did things differently and then like I had people trying to tell me to use like mental issues, not as an excuse, but you know, say that's the thing. 'You have anxiety,' or your depression. 'You're depressed, it's why you're outlashing.’ You know, to help smooth things over, and I'm like man, I'm not one of those people, I don't come up with excuses for myself. I was angry… I had a meltdown in front of the entire world, that's really what happened. I had a meltdown. I broke down in front of the entire world."
