Man, quit being such a brainwashed mark, get on the main roster and make that money.
They didn't see a payraise for NXT getting on USA for tens of millions of dollars. Don't be fools, get the money, especially
if you have neck injuries and the pay window is closing.
The headline is very misleading, it makes it play into the whole narrative where people talk about how mishandled the NXT talents are when they get called up (generally.)
The actual meaning behind his words were
"I've vocalized to them that if I have to go to RAW or Smackdown I'm going to retire and become a Producer or Coach"
-Says he "fought the call up"
-Says a run on the main roster "Isn't worth it for me or my family
-Says his body wouldn't be able to handle the schedule.
When you get the actual context, it's actually a fair point.
I love everyone's eagerness to go full on Raven "what a mark" gif without taking time to understand the main reason he says this, which is that he's too injured to take on the main roster travel and work schedule. On top of that, I'm guessing he's making more money than virtually everyone else on the NXT roster right now, while doing fulfilling work. I mean, he knows how much money he's making and he knows better than us what his physical limitations are. He's a smart guy. I trust he's doing what he surmises to be the best for himself and his loved ones.
