Tucker thanks everyone at WWE, including upper management

While he didn’t exactly go scorched earth, Tucker’s response to his WWE release was the most freewheeling of the nine wrestlers let go last week.

He’s still enjoying his “FREEDOM” and looking forward to telling the behind-the-scenes story of the Heavy Machinery break-up. But with a couple days to reflect and process Thursday’s news, Tucker also has a more positive look at his time in WWE:

“Now that the weekend has come and gone and I’ve had a chance over these last few days to do some reflecting, I want to take this time to say thank you. Thank you to all of the men and women who made my time in WWE a more enjoyable experience. The men and women of the locker room. So many incredibly talented individuals doing so many great things. I learned so much from you guys and I appreciate it. The men and women on the production side: behind the cameras, and the lights, and the microphones; setting up and tearing down the rings and the monitors, we would not have a show and it wouldn’t even be an ounce of what it is without you.

“Thank you, upper management. Even though maybe we didn’t see eye-to-eye on everything, you guys gave me an opportunity to do something that I love and provide for my family and I’ll always be grateful for that, so thank you. Finally, I want to say that moving forward, I don’t know exactly what the future holds for Levi Cooper, but I do know this: I am infinitely excited to use the lessons and skills that I developed while in WWE over these last seven years in whatever comes next.”

Tucker, or I should say Levi, has taken the time to respond to a lot of critics and supporters after his first post-release tweets. Like this statement, those give you the better picture of his overall mindset than just a handful of his initial thoughts.

Looking forward to seeing what you do next, Mr. Cooper.
