Despite not having wrestled for WWE in two years, Tyler Breeze, known for his time at the sports entertainment company as Prince Pretty and one half of Breezano, has been receiving a paycheck from WWE since his release. Not a bad deal considering so many fighters were released around the same time that he reportedly ended the company.
According to Fightful Select, Breeze is still under contract to WWE, but he is specifically referring to his appearances on the Xavier Woods/Austin Creed UpUpDownDown YouTube channel. Details of the contract regarding any wrestling provisions or restrictions are unclear, but sources indicate that Breeze could be banned from appearing on AEW programming. It doesn’t seem like he needs AEW to make ends meet.
While helping out with the YouTube show, Breeze has focused on running the Flatbacks wrestling school alongside Shawn Spears since his release. He even has an upcoming comeback match scheduled for Prestige Wrestling, seemingly putting an end to rumors of his retirement. Interestingly, Breeze is also part of the playable roster in WWE2K23 despite not having a contract with WWE.
Breeze’s business acumen has been praised by those familiar with his efforts. In addition to running the wrestling school, she has made several investments, demonstrating her commitment to ensuring her future beyond the ring. He’s a regular on social media, ended up gaming, trains wrestlers, and has made several smart real estate investments. Breeze is evidence that if you make the right decisions during your wrestling career, even if the in-ring career isn’t that long, you can prepare yourself.
Breeze has had a unique career
Breeze’s WWE journey began in the developmental system, where he spent several years with Florida Championship Wrestling and then WWE NXT. It took her a while to find her footing there, but she eventually found a solid character in NXT, where she livestreamed his entrance to arena screens. He was called up to the main roster and tried a few things with average success. He was never a go-to guy for Vince McMahon, but he clearly left a big enough mark on him to be someone WWE likes to be around.
Some are wondering if there is a chance he could ever return to WWE. You certainly have the connections and the door could be open.
