Tyler Breeze isn’t sure if he’ll keep wrestling after WWE release

New, 38 comments

Free to jump on his SweetzLive Twitch channel and stream to the world again after his WWE release last week, Tyler Breeze did just that yesterday (June 27).

In addition to the standard - and healthy - attitude of gratitude we hear from most performers whose run with Vince McMahon’s company has ended, we also got confirmation that Prince Pretty was penny-wise during his time in WWE:

“I was with the company for eleven years. An eleven year run in the biggest wrestling company in the world is a huge thing. Most people are there for three or four years. The fact that I was there for 11, fantastic, more than I could ask for. I don’t know if you’re ever expecting, but from the rumblings, I was like, ‘Yeah, it could happen.’

“I’ve been preparing to get fired since the day I got hired. That’s how you have to think about it. You have to prepare yourself for the worst case scenario. Are you going to be like, ‘Oh no, I spent all my money and have nothing to show for it’ or are you going to go, ‘Okay, cool, let me figure out what I do from here?’ There are options and a ton of stuff.”

One of those options will be continuing to work with his friend and roomie Xavier Woods, aka Austin Creed.

That’s just part of Tyler’s online game plan. As for his in-ring future?

“What’s the plan for the channel now? That’s what we’re figuring out. We’re ramping back up. I’ll be streaming and we have a lot of stuff to figure out. A lot of stuff is still in the works. I’m setting up my cameo again, I’m just waiting for them to approve it. There’s a lot of stuff in the air that we’re slowly figuring out. You guys will know as I know. We’re firing up ideas for Patreon again.

“Will I continue my wrestling career? I don’t know, we’ll have to see, I haven’t decided yet.”

Breeze and Shawn Spears opened Flatbacks wrestling school in 2019, so even if he’s done performing, don’t expect the former NXT Tag champ to leave the business entirely after his 90 day non-compete is up.

We’ll keep you posted on whatever the 33 year old Canadian gets up to next.
