Tyler Breeze Reveals WWE Planned To Fire Him After ESPN's E:60 Documentary On NXT

As noted, Tyler Breeze and Fandango recently appeared as guests on Edge and Christian’s podcast, E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, for an in-depth interview. Featured below are some highlights of topics Tyler Breeze spoke about during the show.

On Vince McMahon initially not understanding The Fashion Files: “A lot of the reason why it was a success and that it became a thing was because of social media. I guess we did one episode and it was kind of supposed to end after that, but I guess it was the number one trending thing on SmackDown or something like that. And even Vince, he was like, ‘I don’t get it, but the people like it, so keep doing it.’ And it was all-of-a-sudden eight months later because of social media.”

On his days in WWE developmental before finding the Zoolander-based Tyler Breeze character: “I’ve never been the chosen one or however you want to say it, so when I got hired, I kind of had been working for about four years. Cesaro, it was his debut in FCW. He just got signed and I had his first match on FCW TV at the time, which got viewed by like 50 people in Florida. And they put all this emphasis on it, like, ‘okay, this guy’s special. We’ve got to make it a big thing.’ Whatever. So he did a thing where he threw me up in the air and uppercutted me out of the air and I guess it looked really cool, but I guess the people literally went, ‘okay, don’t fire him yet. There might be something here,’ so one little thing like that saved me for another year.”

On nearly being cut back then until Triple H saw him perform well in a match: “We end up having the first NXT pilot at Full Sail [University] to test out and see if Full Sail work work for the venue for NXT and I ended up having a match with one of the guys in Ascension. He was just basically going to kill me, but he was my friend so he goes, ‘no, let’s have a match.’ So we have this match and Triple H happened to be there and he just kind of looked over at Dusty [Rhodes] and he goes, ‘who’s this guy? Like, why have I never seen anything of his?’ And, all-of-a-sudden, I got saved again. I just kind of keep getting saved along the way. All-of-a-sudden, Dusty says Hunter liked what he saw and I’m off the list again.”

On how he was supposed to be cut at the end of ESPN’s E:60 episode regarding the NXT brand: “I was picked on it and it was revealed to me after from Triple H that I was supposed to be the guy who doesn’t make it. I was supposed to be like, ‘hey, let’s follow you around for ESPN and at the end, you’re getting fired.’ And, of course, I had no clue, so I’m think, ‘oh, that’s awesome – this ESPN thing is going to be really cool.'”
