Former WWE Star Nash Carter Breaks Silence Over Controversial Release

Former WWE Star Nash Carter Breaks Silence Over Controversial Release WWE

Former WWE NXT star has broken their silence over their controversial release last month.

Zachary Green, formerly known as Nash Carter, has issued a public apology as his first statement since his release.

Green, now once again known as Zachary Wentz, was released from WWE on April 6 following his wife Kimber Lee posting an image of what appeared to be the former NXT Tag Team Champion performing a Nazi salute having shaved his facial hair to resemble Adolf Hitler.

Green tweeted a statement saying:

A statement from Zachary Green

No words can truly describe how ashamed and apologetic I am for my conduct in the photograph. There is no excuse for such behavior and I take full responsibility for my actions and ask for forgiveness. This picture was taken in 2015, a time where I was uneducated on the topic and therefore didn’t understand the magnitude of how hurtful it was. In 2020 someone was trying to extort me by threatening to post it on social media. I sent it to my wife to discuss the situation. Apparently, she kept it and then decided in retaliation for the filing of the divorce to post it on social media. Regardless how the photograph came to light, there is still no excuse for my actions.

Over the past month I have taken time to reflect on my conduct to which I express my utmost remorse and regret. I have spent time off social media to refresh and re-educate myself about the horrors of the Holocaust. I truly do hope that this situation will teach and bring awareness to the horrific tragedy that took place so that something like this will never happen again. I can assure you that this is not who I am or what I represent as a human being, and I feel it is never too late to educate and better yourself.

If you are ever in the Orlando/Maitland area, take some time to visit the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida where you can learn about the history and depth of what took place. It was an incredibly eye-opening, and impactful experience that teaches the importance of this history.

Zachary Wentz will make his first wrestling appearance since his WWE release this weekend in Florida, which you can read here.
