Exclusive: Tucker Reveals He's Taking Time Off Until 2022
Cooper won't be in the ring anytime soon
While the likes of Malakai Black, Ever-Rise, Anthony Greene and Chelsea Green have all resurfaced since their WWE releases, Levi Cooper (FKA Tucker) hasn't stepped inside the squared circle since the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal ahead of WrestleMania 37.
Fans shouldn't expect to see Cooper in the ring anytime soon, though, as he revealed on Straight To Hell that he and his wife will welcome their second child into the world later this year. As a result, Tucker is taking time off until 2022.
Commenting on what he has been up to since his WWE release, Cooper said: "I've been streaming on Twitch quite a bit, mostly I've just been playing games and talking but I will be doing some cooking and doing some yoga on Twitch starting pretty soon. LeviCooperLive is where you can find me on Twitch. Match-wise, I'm actually taking time off until 2022. I haven't really talked about this too much yet but my wife and I, our second child is due end of September-early October.
"My wife just got a big promotion at work, she's an educator and she's going to be moving into a district-level position. We moved out to Florida together to start our journey and she got a job in education at the same time I got a job in wrestling. She's moving up in the world and that happened to time itself with me not working so I'm going to stay home through the end of this year and be a stay-at-home Dad. Take care of the kids and let her run full force into what she's been really working hard on. I'm very excited to give her the chance to really focus fully on this new position that she's getting."
Cooper also detailed the travel delays WWE talent faced following Crown Jewel 2019, which you can read about here.
