Update: Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that the post made by Mike Knox earlier about turning down an offer to return to WWE is not true. The website says the Twitter account is a fake, and it has now been suspended.
On Twitter, ex-WWE wrestler, Mike Knox said he turned down a WWE offer to rejoin the company on the RAW roster.
“As everybody knows, I am a former WWE and TNA Superstar. As everybody also knows, WWE has been attempting to reach out to former WWE stars to help build the RAW and Smackdown Live dynasty. Recently, I was approached by a man named Mark Carrano. He offered me a full-time deal to return to the RAW brand. I kindly declined. I’m 38 years old, my body isn’t capable of being a full-time WWE wrestler anymore like it was back in 2006, 10 years ago. I like the idea of being on the independent scene, mainly because I get to pick the dates I want to work. After recent concussion issues, I was advised to retire. I said no. 2 months later, I made a remarkable recovery and was cleared to compete. Although, I just didn’t feel as good as I used to when I wrestled full time. Since February 2016, I have been semiretired. If WWE decides to reconsider and offer me a part-time deal, I’d gladly accept it. I have no bad blood with WWE, I just can’t physically compete full-time anymore. As far as a TNA return goes, consider it off the table. At least WWE knows how to pay their talents on time, just saying…”, stated Knox.
Knox wrestled for WWE from 2005 and 2010, and he was on the RAW roster in late 2008 and early 2009. WWE released him in April 2010. He thereafter worked in TNA from 2013 to 2015.
