Tyler Breeze Explains Why He Doesn’t Plan On Joining AEW

Former WWE and NXT star Tyler Breeze has explained why he doesn’t plan on joining All Elite Wrestling (AEW) in the near future.

Many names released by WWE this year, including Andrade El Idolo, Malakai Black and 2.0 (Ever-Rise) have all headed to AEW, and Breeze said it’s kind of become the norm to the point he’s not sure it would make a big impact if he was to do the same.

Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Tyler Breeze said:

“I mean there’s a lot happening in wrestling right now. It’s cool and it’s something we tell our students at Flatbacks (the wrestling school he and Shawn Spears owns). We say to the students, ‘Guys, it’s not as far away as you think’. The students we are training now have been on AEW Dark and NXT. It’s right there. Right now is a good time in wrestling.

“But right now, let’s say on AEW, there are a lot of people debuting, and there are a lot of people moving around all over the place. If I go there, I don’t know if it would make a massive impact. Now it’s kind of the norm. People are going over there, and there might be some big names going over there. Nobody knows what is happening, but I don’t think now is the right time for me to go there.

“At the same time, I have wrestled for 14 years straight. I’m okay with taking a little bit of a break. My body likes it, and I am getting enough wrestling at the school to keep my body good. I’m not currently taking any bookings. Going out there and getting injured, it doesn’t really appeal to me. If there was a match that was fun, I think I might do it, but I have scratched the wrestling itch, but if it comes back, maybe.”

Breeze was let go by WWE on June 25 as part of the cost-cutting measures headed up by Nick Khan.

After even more releases last week, NXT is now set to undergo a big revamp and become a more traditional developmental system focusing on bigger and younger talent.
