Tyler Breeze and Fandango had been not too long ago interviewed on Edge & Christian’s Podcast of Awesomeness the place they mentioned how Breeze he used to be just about fired on a number of events.
Fandango first defined how he and Breeze weren’t complacent and pitched gimmicks to get themselves on TV:
“It used to be simply instance of, like, earlier than tagging with Breezy, you weren’t in point of fact booked on TV, so it’s simple simply to take a seat round each and every week at TV and being annoyed, however I feel we applied the [WWE].com guys in point of fact neatly, simply more or less being proactive. And looking to virtually, like, pitch our personal little gimmick there and I feel it’s only a just right instance of being proactive and simply looking to make one thing occur. And I communicate to Breeze always and we’re in point of fact happy with what we did as a result of nobody in point of fact gave that to us. We more or less put within the paintings for that.”
Breeze explains that Vince McMahon didn’t perceive The Fashion Files. However, he requested that they retain it going because of the recognition it had on social media:
“A lot of the reason why it was a success and that it became a thing was because of social media. I guess we did one episode and it was kind of supposed to end after that, but I guess it was the number one trending thing on SmackDown or something like that. And even Vince, he was like, ‘I don’t get it, but the people like it, so keep doing it.’ And it was all-of-a-sudden eight months later because of social media.”
Breeze notes intimately probably the most closest occasions he got here to being fired from WWE, across the time that Antonio Cesaro debuted in FCW:
“I’ve never been the chosen one or however you want to say it, so when I got hired, I kind of had been working for about four years. Cesaro, it was his debut in FCW. He just got signed and I had his first match on FCW TV at the time, which got viewed by like 50 people in Florida. And they put all this emphasis on it, like, ‘okay, this guy’s special. We’ve got to make it a big thing.’ Whatever. So he did a thing where he threw me up in the air and uppercutted me out of the air and I guess it looked really cool, but I guess the people literally went, ‘okay, don’t fire him yet. There might be something here,’ so one little thing like that saved me for another year.”
Breeze remembered some other state of affairs when he used to be going to be fired however used to be stored when Triple H noticed him carry out neatly all the way through a fit:
“We end up having the first NXT pilot at Full Sail [University] to test out and see if Full Sail would work for the venue for NXT. And I ended up having a match with one of the guys in Ascension. He was just basically going to kill me, but he was my friend so he goes, ‘no, let’s have a match.’ So we have this match and Triple H happened to be there and he just kind of looked over at Dusty [Rhodes] and he goes, ‘who’s this guy? Like, why have I never seen anything of his?’ And, all-of-a-sudden, I got saved again. I just kind of keep getting saved along the way. All-of-a-sudden, Dusty says Hunter liked what he saw and I’m off the list again.”
Finally, Breeze admitted that he used to be meant to be fired on the finish of ESPN’s E:660 episode primarily based round NXT:
“I was picked on it and it was revealed to me after from Triple H that I was supposed to be the guy who doesn’t make it. I was supposed to be like, ‘hey, let’s follow you around for ESPN and at the end, you’re getting fired.’ And, of course, I had no clue, so I think, ‘oh, that’s awesome – this ESPN thing is going to be really cool.'”
