WWE Tough Enough season one winner Maven has recalled talks he had with Triple H last year about returning to WWE.
He was with the company from 2001-2005, with his only championship reigns being three with the Hardcore Title, despite seemingly being set for bigger things after winning Tough Enough.
Speaking on That ’90s Wrestling Podcast, Maven said:
“Before the world was shut down before the pandemic, I actually travelled to Orlando and met with Hunter (Triple H) and with Albert (Matt Bloom) who is running the developmental down there now. And I was talking to them about maybe doing some announcing stuff.
“And I did that, and I went there, on March 11 of 2020. And if you remember, in America that’s the day America shut down. So, I never want to turn my back or say, ‘No or it’ll never happen’. Because I don’t know.
“I still and will always have wrestling in my blood. I still have wrestling dreams every week. I still have a dream where I’m either putting my boots on or I’m in the ring or I’m getting ready to wrestle somebody, and my love for the business is never gonna leave.
“I would definitely entertain any opportunity to be back in wrestling in any capacity.”
Obviously a lot has changed since Triple H was running things in NXT, so you have to question whether these previous talks actually hold any weight nowadays.
Maven hasn’t wrestled on record since 2016, having transitioned into working in finance.
