Lars Sullivan has had a year to forget, and it has gotten worse this week after reports of him acting in homosexual pornographic movies came to light. Lars Sullivan, performing under the name of Mitch Bennett, starred in a number of adult films before joining the professional wrestling world.
Sullivan, who was fined a hundred grand by WWE after a series of homophobic comments made by him in the past came to light a few months ago, is currently injured and had an early 2020 timeline for return.
Sullivan left all social media after his comments surfaced online, and it seems like he has done the same after reports of his past as an adult film star started circulating around. Sullivan has deleted his Twitter account and changed his Instagram to private.
According to Fightful Select, Sullivan hasn’t communicated with any member of the WWE roster yet, and hence, there are concerns regarding his WWE future. Sullivan’s backstage reputation came into question after his homophobic comments earlier, and it seems like Sullivan is not a well-liked personality among the WWE locker-room.
Sullivan had a big debut earlier this year, and if rumors are to believed, he was set to face off against John Cena at WrestleMania. However, Sullivan suffered a panic attack and left WWE programming, before getting injured.
WWE had big things planned for the Freak, but the skeletons in Lars’ closet are refusing to let him lead a proper career in the company. Vince McMahon was reportedly very high on the superstar, and it will be interesting to see how things change after these string of events.
Paige and Xavier Woods seemed to do fine in the company after their tapes were leaked online, which points towards a not-so-tough situation for Sullivan. However, Sullivan’s reluctance to communicate with WWE could work against him, and it won’t be a surprise if he never returns to full-time WWE programming.
