His experience in WWE, when first joining: It was awesome, you know. You’re an independent wrestler making 10-20 bucks if you’re lucky to drive around the state or country or whatever, you know and then they get noticed by WWE and actually be able to get signed and get paid to wrestle, to do what you love doing, you know, it’s awesome, I mean, ya cant beat it. But then you know I never got into wrestling to have it as a job. I enjoyed it, just cause you could do whatever you wanted to and ya know, you got to perform in front of a live crowd and, you know probably 3 years into my WWE road it started turning into a job and that’s when I started getting frustrated. And then you know, it just wasn’t the same after that, it turned into to much of a job. Then, they started to enforce something like a dress code and you couldn’t do this, and you couldn’t do that and if you were late you had to pay 500 dollars. Like it just got to be like, I felt like I was in kindergarten, it was ridiculous.

On what he didn’t like from WWE when being there: Well, there really wasn’t anything I didn’t like doing up until the point where they started making me paint my teeth and shave all my hair off, that sucked. But, up until that point it was great, you know that’s when it started to like I said turn into a job and, just wasn’t cutting it, you know. I was going back and forth with the writers and the creative team and just butting heads with those guys and its like, you got a group of guys that are comic book geeks that never played a sport in their life and they’re trying to tell me who you has played. You know I played Pro football. I’ve played Division 1 College football. I was a top athlete my whole life and these guys are trying to write these goofy scenarios and it was like, come on man…give me a break.


Pretty interesting if you ask me. Get an inside look as to what goes on in the WWE, the rules, enforcements, etc. from a guy who kinda just hung around the company and didn't do much.

Sucks if what he is saying is true. Always bad when someone who generally loves the business doesn't get treated right. On the bright side, when people like Snitsky or Luke Gallows go to WWE, even if you're just a midcarder / jobber on superstars, you're indy bookings go through the roof once released. You might be nothing to WWE but you're a fully cut diamond to the indys.

Yeah, you know, it's a really good read you know. I mean it brings up a lot of good points or whatever you know.

Yeah over many interviews I've read/heard about the writers in WWE it's almost fact by this point that they have a total lack of understanding and respect for the wrestlers in their company and they can't differentiate when the wrestlers are giving some good creative input that they are happy with or when their just being plain lazy fat jerks like a Matt Hardy for example and so on who are all in TNA by now.

I really enjoyed the Snitsky in the beginning before they made him do that stuff as well. He seems to fall into that category of the Heidenrichs and so many other released talents by WWE that just probably will fall off the face of the earth and not be seen again on the indys or in japan, or mexico ever. I see that from this interview for some reason by what he's saying.

I feel for him. He didn't say anything bad about the company as much as anyone else, but that's because you don't have to go over the top to be sincere. Unlike the Hardys and Helms, Mr. Snitsky here pretty much just says his piece without any stupid additions to it.

I do wish him the best of luck, and thank god he can keep his teeth white and get his hair back.

And man, WWE has a dress code now? That's way too much.

Totally agree, and I think that gives credence to what he said. Alot of times you hear these over the top interviews from guys who never made it past mid card, and while what they're saying might be true, it comes across as sour grapes. It sounded more like he was disappointed with how everything turned out more than anything.

I was never a Snitsky fan, but I can appreciate his love for the business. I wish the best for him.
