Scotty 2 Hotty, legend of The Worm in the WWE ring, who some time ago was in charge of being the wrestling coach at the Performance Center for NXT, requested last year the Stamford company to be released in November 2021 and was satisfied.
This was his statement at the time about it: “I have asked for my release from World Wrestling Entertainment. 30 years ago I entered a WWE ring for the first time. I have lived my dream 100 times. Some of my most special memories will always be from the last five years of working with NXT.
The black and gold brand was something special and I am proud to have been a part of it. I always promised myself that I would never be a part of anything just for the paycheck and that's just where I got to. I told myself I would leave if I got to that point, so that's what I chose to do.
Training and producing NXT stars will always be a highlight of my life. I love you all more than you will ever know." Since then, the WWE veteran has continued to work in the world of pro-wrestling, but only for short appearances and in independent companies, continuing to accept bookings for single nights.
Scotty 2 Hotty attacks Intergender Wrestling
In the last few hours, the historic athlete who fought alongside Rikishi and Brian Cristopher (the late son of Jerry Lawler) in the Smackdown ring several years ago, has lashed out at intergender wrestling, or what sees men going to fight against women.
We remember how in his past in WWF / E, the athlete has fought several matches against some women, such as Chyna and Linda Miles. Regarding the companies that asked him to have him in booking against women, Scotty 2 Hotty replied: "Dear promoters.
I DON'T FIGHT against women. I'm 49 and a 20-year-old daughter. I don't like hurting women. I understand that there are men who do this nowadays. But that's not a thing for me. If that makes me look too old or out of the loop, that's fine.
Please stop booking me like this. Also, when it comes to my matches 20+ years ago with Linda Miles, Chyna, or any other woman I've dealt with, I know what I've done. They were different times, different places and above all I was not the father of a 20-year-old girl." After leaving these statements, Scotty 2 Hotty was inundated with criticism from independent wrestlers who have been working for years in the world of intergender wrestling, so much so that the WWE veteran had to deactivate his Twitter account, which at the time of writing it turns out to be in fact disappeared from the well-known social network.
