A former WWE star has opened up about his release, revealing that the door is open for a possible return down the line.
Mojo Rawley was released by WWE in April, ten months after his last match for the company. In the months since his departure, Rawley has been enjoying life, free from WWE policies.
Speaking with Fightful, Rawley opened up about feeling mixed emotions when he found out he had been released. Discussing a potential return, Rawley said:
“Yeah, man. There was a lot that was going on at that time. But, ultimately when I got the news—there’s always some mixed emotions—but, I don’t know, the way I looked at it was, for the last couple years I was starting to get to the point where I feel like they don’t know how to use me here. I feel like I have all this talent that no one’s seen. I literally was never in a legitimate program or storyline with anybody.”
“So, I felt like I was approaching that time. So, I was kinda glad, man. Now, it’s like, I’m re-learning what freedom smells and tastes like and I can do anything I want,” he said. “I don’t have to ask permission. I can start a Twitch account. I can go to a restaurant for a nice meal and tag the restaurant on my personal social media. So, there’s a lot, man. I’m hustling. I’m busier now than I’ve ever been, which has been nuts. It just shows it was time. It’s a win-win.”
(When asked whether or not an eventual WWE return is a possibility) “More or less. There was a lot that went into that. Maybe we’ll touch on that later. But, yeah, more or less it was like, ‘Hey, man. Door’s open. Good luck.”
