Biff Busick Discusses Becoming Burnt Out In WWE NXT
Busick wrestled as Oney Lorcan in NXT
Burnout is no joke, and affects people from all walks of life.
In wrestling, we’ve recently seen Toni Storm walk out of WWE allegedly due to burnout, and former NXT star Biff Busick (fka Oney Lorcan) admitted to Sports Illustrated that he felt burnt out during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic:
“When COVID hit and we had to do those shows without a crowd at the [WWE Performance Center], or when they started bringing people in, it just wasn’t the same,” Busick said. “I was burned out from those circumstances. William Regal would always tell me there were two types of shows - large arena shows and small room shows. They are different environments, and they both have their positives, but I’ve always been a fan of smaller room shows. To be so close and personal, and be so close to the fans, especially in Beyond, it’s an experience unlike any other. This is where I cut my teeth, and I’m really excited to get back and wrestle.”
Busick was released by WWE in November 2021, and the former CZW World Heavyweight Champion is now back on the Indies.
