Last week, Jordan Myles revealed that he had quit WWE in a profanity-filled Twitter live stream. Taking to social media, the NXT star explained that he no longer wants to work for a ‘racist company’.
However, Myles has since confirmed that although he is mentally done with WWE, he hasn’t technically left the company yet.
Speaking on a Twitter Q&A, the man formerly known as ACH on the independent scene has revealed why he thinks Vince McMahon’s company is racist:
“The WWE was racist to me because of the T-shirt that they produced for me. I was lied to, which really hurt my feelings the most. On top of that, if that was their image of me, what does that say about, you know, the kids, the African-American kids that watch it. Or just people in general that watch it, that felt some kind of way about that shirt, not just me. I think that that shirt was disrespectful, it was disgraceful. And on top of that, it was a slap in the face. Not only to myself, but all the viewers that look just like me. I think that that shirt was completely racist, and if you go back and you do the history, I mean yeah they’ve given titles and championships to African-Americans. But that doesn’t take away the fact that they have done things that were very insensitive to the African-American community. And I think a lot of people need to really look at that.”
It has been reported that WWE actually had pretty big plans to push Myles as one of NXT’s top stars on the USA Network prior to this situation arising.
