Released WWE NXT Talent Offers Lengthy Statement
Released WWE NXT talent Sylvester LeFort issued the following statement via Twitter following his WWE release:
“So it’s now been 24 hours since my release by WWE, and no lol I did NOT quit to put these rumors to rest.
First of let me thank all my fans for their continued support, and yes, you WILL definitely hear from, and see me again.
My 3 years and a half working for WWE have been a life changing experience, both in and out of the ring, and I will always be grateful for the opportunity they gave me. They made me a better performer, in the ring, on the microphone (definitely!) as well as a more mature and life enjoying human being. Damn, after all, I started painting thanks to them in a way! And you all know how much I now appreciate art.
But anyway as far as why it came to an end, let me use one my best buddy “Marcus Louis” metaphor about this business:
A Shakespeare play is awesome.
But Spiderman is awesome too.
And if you’re okay at playing Shakespeare, but VERY GOOD at playing Spiderman, there comes a time when you either move on or they hire someone better for the job!
This is pretty much what happened with me.
So from the bottom of my heart, thank you EVERYBODY : workers, coaches, fans, behind the scenes people, for making this ride such an awesome adventure.
To all my fans, don’t worry, wrestling is still in my blood and some of the products out there still gives me goosebumps. This is why I will follow my heart, and I WILL be back in the ring.
Be blessed. Follow your heart. Give love and respect to your peers so they give it back to you.”
