One group that was noticeably absent from WrestleMania 35 was Sanity. Now, Alexander Wolfe has revealed that the group was actually told to leave the venue.
Wolfe recently spoke to Sport1 where he revealed that WWE told Sanity to go home. They had tried to pitch an idea to be part of the Shane McMahon vs. The Miz match but WWE didn’t take to the idea. He said:
“I would have loved to play at the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. At WrestleMania 35 we would have had a job in the match Shane McMahon vs. The Miz. We had pitched the idea to intervene and catch Miz doing a jump stunt that he had planned. We were already on site in New York, we were told to come to the stadium for the rehearsals – and on the way there it was said: ‘Guys, it won’t work, go home’. That was another real kick in the balls. Shortly afterwards we were informed of the resolution.
“There are many empty promises made to you at WWE: We have big plans for you, you will be at every show, blablabla. That’s how it is, I know the business and I’m not angry about it. But you just have to know that you cannot rely on certain statements, especially not if they come from third parties, not from the boss directly.”
Sanity was split up in 2019 with each member going their separate ways. Eric Young was released by WWE on April 15, 2020, while Alexander Wolfe and Killian Dain were released earlier this year.
