“I always pictured myself being an indy guy and eventually down the road I would get to WWE. What ended up happening is I was signed when I was 20 so I never really got the chance to be an indy wrestler,” he said.
“I started wrestling when I was 15 but you don’t get booked a lot when you are 16 or 17. I didn’t have a lot of connections so I didn’t do too many indies. For me I am a wrestler no matter what, if I am in WWE or somewhere else it is cool. I didn’t see getting fired as my life being over, this is an opportunity to keep wrestling and doing my thing. I am not really down about it at all.”
As for what’s next for him, Barreta says, “It is a new chapter and I think it is going to be great. Now is my chance to get out and show people what I can do and there is nothing holding me back. There are no old men in suits to yell at me and tell me what I did wrong after my match. I am looking forward to just having fun.”
