Recently released WWE star A.W. posted the following on Twitter, as he continues to be very vocal about his departure from the company:

"People are asking me to bash the WWE. I'm not going to do that but I will point out my discrepancies. There are too many men and women that put their lives on the line for this job. I respect all my fellow former employees. They deserve so much better. Maybe one day."

"I don't have a bad thing to say about anyone on a personal level. It's the higher up politics that are BS. My lockeroom was great. #ThankU"

"I'm looking forward to the stand up comedy scene. This won't be the Abraham Washington show with horrible jokes written by bad writers. Although I'm considering talking to Tony Atlas to see if he'd like to join me on stage..I'm about to tear some shit up!!"
