Tyler Breeze: I've Been Preparing To Get Fired Since The Day WWE Hired Me
Breeze was released on Friday
Tyler Breeze has spoken about his departure from WWE, saying he was with the promotion for longer than he ever expected and was always prepared for a worst case scenario.
Breeze was released by WWE on Friday June 25 after over a decade in the promotion. The 33-year-old had most recently been a huge part of NXT's roster during the pandemic era, teaming with Fandango.
The former NXT Tag Team Champion says he had a 'fantastic' experience with WWE and had prepared himself for the possibility of being let go.
Speaking on SweetzLive on Twitch he said: "I was with the company for eleven years. An eleven year run in the biggest wrestling company in the world is a huge thing. Most people are there for three or four years. The fact that I was there for 11, fantastic, more than I could ask for.
"I don't know if you're ever expecting, but from the rumblings, I was like, 'Yeah, it could happen.' I've been preparing to get fired since the day I got hired. That's how you have to think about it. You have to prepare yourself for the worst case scenario. Are you going to be like, 'Oh no, I spent all my money and have nothing to show for it' or are you going to go, 'Okay, cool, let me figure out what I do from here?' There are options and a ton of stuff."
Breeze would also confirm he has a 90-day no-compete clause but isn't 100 per cent sure he will continue his wrestling career, when asked about his future plans.
He added: "What's the plan for the channel now? That's what we're figuring out. We're ramping back up. I'll be streaming and we have a lot of stuff to figure out. A lot of stuff is still in the works.
"I'm setting up my cameo again, I'm just waiting for them to approve it. There's a lot of stuff in the air that we're slowly figuring out. You guys will know as I know. We're firing up ideas for Patreon again. Will I continue my wrestling career? I don't know, we'll have to see, I haven't decided yet."
