WWE has released a number of stars over the past few weeks and earlier today Gerald Brisco and Cain Velasquez joined the growing list, but one star who was a surprise when his release was officially announced, was No Way Jose.
The former NXT star traveled to Monday Night Raw the day before he was released in the hopes that it would save his career, but instead, he became another star who was deemed surplus to requirements.
As part of a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, No Way Jose revealed that he had no less than 13 storyline pitches turned down by WWE in the same week.
Jose claimed that he pitched a number of ideas including an interesting feud with Elias that would see him work as his “groupie” before later turning in him. The former star claimed that the company didn’t even respond to his ideas to tell him if they were good or bad and that he was shocked that they didn’t even try to meet him halfway to offer him any support when it came to making these ideas a reality.
It appears that No Way Jose wasn’t the only star to have issues when it came to pitching ideas since current AEW star Jon Moxley recently spoke to PWInsider where he revealed the problems that he faced when trying to pitch ideas to the WWE Chairman.
“[Khan] is business savvy, but also just an incredibly passionate wrestling fan. He’s so easy to get excited, if I go up like, “Dude, I got this idea. What if we did this?” And he’d be like, “Dude, that’s awesome. What if we did this then? And then we can do that.” And he’ll get all excited like a little kid. And I’ll be like, “Hold on, tone it down. Tone it down.” Which is cool. You want that.”
Whereas sometimes, I come in and talk to Vince and I’m all excited. I’m like, “Dude, okay, here we go. We’re going to do this, this, this. Then this. Then we do this on Raw. And then on pay-per-view this. What do you think?” And it’s like talking to a door. Dude, hello, I’m giving you awesome. They’re like, nope. We’re just going to do the same old crap we always do. I’m like, whatever. But yeah, it’s a real good experience where I am. He’s an honest dude. He’s not a carny, and even though he’s business savvy, he’s not like a shark. He’s just an honest, straightforward, good dude,” via Ringsidenews.
