Flash Morgan Webster Reveals Why He Rejected WWE Before Release

Flash Morgan Webster reveals all

Shortly after his WWE release along with much of the NXT UK roster on August 18, it emerged that Flash Morgan Webster's contract had actually expired earlier in the year and he turned down two renewal offers before putting pen to paper on a new deal with the company. 

Taking to Twitter, The Modfather revealed why he turned down WWE twice, writing: 

"Last night was my first match in over a year and my first independent match in close to three. In April, rumours started surfacing that I'd turn down multiple renewal offers from the WWE. Those rumours were true.

"There was a few reasons I turned them contracts down but one of them was that I felt like maybe I was done with stepping into a wrestling ring. That passion just wasn't there, I wasn't enjoying it, and motivation to rehab or get in any form of ring shape was the last thing I wanted to do. I'd later go in to re-sign so my family and I had security while I was injured."

Webster then noted that he was somewhat relieved when he was released and he considered becoming a coach or full-time promoter due to his pre-match anxiety but he ultimately decided to accept two independent bookings. Following his match in Over The Top Wrestling, Flash noted he is now going to focus on just having fun in pro wrestling, regardless of where that takes him.
