Q: Is there any doubt in your mind, do you think you can handle it better at this point in your life if you ever get back into that atmosphere?
A: Well that’s something I’m obviously going to have to face at some point. But I believe this, I at least, going into the situation, I can see so much clearer the second time around. I know so much more than I did back at 20 years old, I’m more educated. A lot of it was being young, naive, impressionable and just not knowing enough about what exactly I was getting into, so I do have confidence in myself that I can make the right decisions.
Q: What was said when they [WWE] ultimately let you go, was the door open [for your return], was that ever said to you, or was it simply you are released and go about your business?
A: I was told to check back with them 6 months later, but I remember still at that point, 6 months out, I felt like it wasn’t necessarily the right time, I felt like I had to be away from that for awhile and collect myself, because when you enter that bubble it’s hard to get away from the pressure and the stresses and just take care of yourself. So that’s why I feel like this last year and a half has been, it’s been a healing thing for me, it’s been something I’ve obviously needed, and you know I feel like a completely different person so I feel like it would be a whole other song and dance the second time out for Chris Masters in the WWE.
Chris went on to say that if you are interested in booking him for any indy events, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also listen to the entire interview as well as the entire broadcast of this past Monday night’s Voice of Wrestling radio show by CLICKING HERE.
