Knowing Mr McMahon’s love for tall guys, many believe that former GFW/TNA star Matt Morgan could have been a big Star in WWE if he would have worked with the company for long enough.
While The 7 footer did have a stint with WWE from 2002 to 2005 and became the OVW Champion multiple times too, he couldn’t achieve much in the main roster and was released from the company after having multiple gimmick changes.
During his appearance on the Sitting Ringside with David Penzer podcast, the former GFW star talked about his WWE release and revealed that Officials actually wanted him to go to NJPW and work there for sometimes before returning to the company.
However, Matt decided to leave New Japan and join TNA instead. According to him, he took this decision because he got really bitter and pissed off on WWE:
“WWE sets me up to go to New Japan, got paid really well, but I got really bitter and pissed off. I then decide, you know what? I’m going to shove this up their ass and go to TNA and be ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan and show them exactly what they missed out on.”
Morgan recently left GFW because the Brand wanted to start touring again soon and he apparently couldn’t do it because of his 9 to 5 job.
While Matt Morgan did win multiple Championships in TNA, he was never considered to be a Main Event talent for the company and he never won any singles title in the promotion either. One could only imagine how different his career would have been if he had stayed with NJPW and later returned to WWE.
