MISSED ALL THE BIG NEWS IN WRESTLING? DO NOT FEAR WE WILL COVER ALL THE BIG STORIES IN ONE PLACE; THIS IS THE WRESTLING NEWS UPDATE!
ACH CLARIFIES WWE STATUS
ACH took to social media for a live Q&A session, following his dramatic departure from WWE.
One fan asked if ACH was legally able to move on from WWE, but he confirmed that’s not the case. He said “Legally, no. Mentally, yes.”
He was also asked where he would like to end up post-WWE, saying “New Japan, not that I got anything against AEW, but New Japan, I love New Japan. I feel like I got a lot more left to accomplish there.”
He also shed some light on his alleged ‘mental health’ rumours that surrounded this. He can have severe mood swings due to his anxiety and depression, but that shouldn’t discredit what he’s previously said.
“The thing about the mental health, I do suffer with anxiety and I do suffer with depression and I can have bad mood swings sometimes, but that doesn’t mean when I speak out it doesn’t have any meaning behind it. The t-shirt triggered things from my past and it all came up at once, and a lot of anger from my past came up with it, as well. That caused me to come at people the way that I did. Again, I’m not gonna apologize for what I said. What I said, I meant it.”
He also said he stood by his comments on Jay Lethal, saying there is a story behind why he said that about Lethal, but wasn’t going to disclose it. ACH also confirmed that Lethal never said anything to him after his tweet.
