Malcolm Bivens Comments On WWE Release, Reports He Turned Down A Contract Offer

Former WWE NXT Superstar Malcolm Bivens (Stokley Hathaway) is done with professional wrestling…for now.

Malcolm Bivens posted a video on his social media from his standup comedy event last night and covered a variety of topics that people are curious about. Bivens said he was offered a new contract in February and turned it down. He said he was asked to go to the main roster but was never told he was going to be working with Omos.

“I have to… I hate to say it. I have to control my narrative. Hey, don’t boo. I’m unemployed. You can’t boo me, alright? I get a pass,” Malcolm Bivens said. “Alright, so here’s the truth. There’s a lot of rumors, a lot of speculation. Was I offered a contract in February? Yes. Did I say no to said contract? Yes. Was I offered to be with Omos? No. No one said a word to me about managing Omos. Was I told about the main roster? Yes. People think I’m crazy like Malcolm; you throw away millions potentially. You walked away. Yeah, I did because I didn’t want to do it anymore. Unfortunately, I just wasn’t happy. At Stand & Deliver, I had a conversation with the head writer, and I told him so. And then, two weeks ago, I said the same thing. I don’t think this was for me, and that’s okay. Because your happiness is not dictated by what people say you should do. Happiness is dictated by what you think you should do. There’s a difference, right? It’s been an interesting few days. I’ll put it to you that way.”

Bivens then displayed his comedic chops and shared some of his standup act, where he had some hilarious comments regarding the NXT UK brand.

“Also, Julius told me that I was the talk of the PC. They think I’m crazy too,” Malcolm Bivens joked. “All the people from the UK talking about, ‘what’s wrong with the little black bloke? I heard he turned down his contract. Does he have a drug problem or something?’ Shut the fuck up! You can’t talk shit about me just because Nick Khan forgot ya’ll exist. You ain’t better than me, motherfuckers. You’re not better than me. NXT UK is crazy, man. I’m gonna say this if you work for WWE and you want to stay there forever, get transferred to NXT UK. You could be number one on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, kidnap three families, shoot up the Popeyes down the street. They’ll put you in a program with Ilja Dragunov. They don’t give a shit! I’m just saying. I mean, with all due respect. I gotta be careful because I talked about Nick Khan, but I know for sure that Johnny Ace has my phone bugged, and I know he’s frustrated too. ‘All this motherfucker talks about is Asian women and fried chicken. This is exhausting!’ I know. That’s my life though.”

Bivens got serious at the end of the video, where he revealed that he’s done with professional wrestling for now. But maybe he’ll come back if the price is right.

“Shout out to Brutus. Shout out to Julius. Ivy. I’m going to miss them,” Malcolm Bivens said. “I love them like they were my kids. But sometimes, in life, you have to move on. People asked me, or they have been asking me. Malcolm, is this it for you? Is this it as far as professional wrestling goes? And for now, I have to say yes. Will I come back? Maybe. Maybe for the right price.”
