So there is a little more to it than that. Wrestlers are humans as well and that means that they are going to do something things that you may not see coming. Even if a wrestler is on the WWE roster, it does not mean that they are going to have everything go smoothly for them. Something that the company does may set them off and it can cause quite the moment as a result. That was certainly the case over the weekend with a situation involving what was considered to be a racist t-shirt. However, it turns out that there is another detail to the story which could change a few things.

Over the weened, NXT talent Jordan Myles erupted on Twitter, talking about how a shirt in his name was racist due to resembling blackface or a minstrel show. Myles went on to complain about WWE’s treatment of African American wrestlers while also complaining about how Jay Lethal acted in Ring of Honor. WWE responded to the whole situation, saying that Myles knew the shirt was coming and had not complained before. The complaints continued on Monday, but there was a part of the story that had not been brought up yet.

According to PW Insider Elite Audio, Myles had not been around the WWE Performance Center over the last several weeks and had not been wrestling on NXT house shows in the same span of time. Myles’ most recent match took place on an NXT house show on September 21. Myles had been reported as returning to his home state of Texas to deal with some family issues, but it is not known if he has returned to Orlando or not. There is no word on when Myles will be back in the Performance Center.

On top of all this, some fans are not pleased with Myles, and have been letting him know about it on Twitter, with some even comparing him to Jussie Smollet, an actor who had some issues with racist statements earlier this year:

Myles has in fact wrestled a bit. Check out his biggest match in NXT:

Opinion: I have no idea what is going on here but it does not sound like it is going to end well. There seems to be a very strong chance that this is going to be it for Myles in WWE, which could see him return to the independent wrestling scene as ACH. It isn’t like Myles has been unsuccessful in NXT, but it is pretty clear that something is going wrong at the moment. This seems like something that has been building up for a long time now and maybe it is best for everyone involved if the two sides part ways. Either way, this does not seem likely to end well and it came completely out of nowhere.

What do you think is next for Myles? Where will he wrestle next? Let us know in the comments below.
