Alexander Wolfe believes he missed his chance to build a relationship with Vince McMahon.
Wolfe was recently released by WWE, ending his six-year stint with the company. In a recent interview with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Wolfe opened up about being quiet backstage and missing his opportunity to connect with McMahon. He said:
“I missed building up a relationship with him. As a foreigner, my English is not perfect and I stumble over my words. I’m more a quiet guy in the back. I’m like a soldier, you tell me what to do and in my best ability, I will do it. I tired (to talk to him) a couple of times and had one or two conversations with him, man-to-man, which went great and I left with a good feeling. he was very nice to me and I cannot tell any bad story about the man, but I missed building up a relationship. We tried to do that at the beginning but he wasn’t present at that time because he had meetings. It was around the time they negotiated for the Fox deal because SmackDown was still on Tuesday at the time.
“I think it was because of that. Sometimes, Hunter was around. Sometimes, nobody was around besides the next guy in charge, which I guess was Michael Hayes. We didn’t have a good chance to introduce ourselves and on one SmackDown, we came back from the curtain and [Vince] was there. A random, ‘hello, thank you very much, something you want to change?’ When the live television production is running, he doesn’t have a lot of time to sit down and focus on three dudes who just came up, he wants to keep the show going. Later, I feel like I missed the opportunity to introduce myself and it was a little too late. You have to do it because he’s the boss and he wants to invest. You don’t invest in things you don’t know or you’re not familiar with.”
Alexander Wolfe (now known as Axel Tischer) had been part of the Sanity and Imperium factions during his time in WWE.
