Lars Sullivan has had quite a controversial WWE career, from a Twitter spat with Lacey Evans during his time in NXT, before his main roster debut was then set back when Sullivan reportedly suffered an anxiety attack backstage.
The Freak finally made his debut a few months later but his run was once again cut short when he suffered a knee injury in June 2019.
It was during this time that there were a number of reports online that the star had been publishing comments on Bodybuilding.com’s forum from 2007 until 2013 and many of these comments were deemed homophobic, sexist, and racist.
The comments were deemed offensive by several wrestling fans and many were even directed at WWE employees.
In response to these comments, Sullivan stated:
“There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago. They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologize to anyone I offended.”
‘The Freak’ was then fined $100,000 by WWE and forced to complete sensitivity training. Since these comments came to light, Sullivan has made his online accounts private and been on a lengthy hiatus.
It was also revealed back in December that Sullivan had starred in a number of homosexual pornographic films under the name Mitch Bennett. This was perhaps one of the reasons why Sullivan disappeared off the radar and went into self-imposed exile.
Finally, the WWE star resurfaced on Instagram in the last week and has been posting some videos of him working out. Sullivan was said to be out of action for up to nine months back in June last year but hasn’t been seen in more than a year.
These new videos from his private Instagram account could be a hint that The Freak is getting ready to make his return to WWE.
