Sylvester Lefort, who was among five wrestlers released from NXT this week, took to social media on Saturday to discuss his departure from the promotion.
In addition to Lefort, Bull Dempsey, Marcus Louis, Peter Howard and Magno were also let go by WWE this week.
Lefort wrote the following regarding his release on Twitter account on Saturday:
So it’s now been 24 hours since my release by WWE, and no lol I did NOT quit to put these rumors to rest.
First of let me thank all my fans for their continued support, and yes, you WILL definitely hear from, and see me again.
My 3 years and a half working for WWE have been a life changing experience, both in and out of the ring, and I will always be gratefull for the opportunity they gave me. They made me a better performer, in the ring, on the microphone (definitely!) as well as a more mature and life enjoying human being. Damn, after all, I started painting thanks to them in a way! And you all know how much I now appreciate art.
But anyway as far as why it came to an end, let me use one my best buddy “Marcus Louis” metaphor about this business:
A Shakespear play is awesome.
But Spiderman is awesome too.
And if you’re okay at playing Shakespear, but VERY GOOD at playing Spiderman, there comes a time when you either move on or they hire someone better for the job!
This is pretty much what happened with me.
So from the bottom of my heart, thank you EVERYBODY : workers, coaches, fans, behind the scenes people, for making this ride such an awesome adventure.
To all my fans, don’t worry, wrestling is still in my blood and some of the products out there still gives me goosebumps. This is why I will follow my heart, and I WILL be back in the ring.
Be blessed. Follow your heart. Give love and respect to your peers so they give it back to you.
