Welcome back? Wrestling is rather different from the rest of the sporting world in that wrestlers are able to jump back into the ring at almost any time. Since there is no season or anything close to one, a wrestler can work a match or two and then sit on the sidelines for as long as they want. Now a legend is returning to the ring just after officially leaving WWE.
Last month, Scotty 2 Hotty requested and received his release from WWE. This ended a five year long stint as an NXT trainer and a decades long association with the company. Since his release, Scotty has already been signed to wrestle at the IPSW Valentine’s Vengeance on February 18. This will be Scotty’s first match of any kind since November 2016.
Scotty was certainly a star in WWE. Check out some of his time in the company:
Opinion: This is hardly some big shocking move and it is nice to see Scotty being able to get back in the ring if that is what he wants to do. Scotty is someone who is going to be remembered for his glory days in the ring and should be able to do his usual stuff to get by. A lot of other wrestlers have done the exact same thing and Scotty should be another name added to the long list.
What do you think of Scotty? Who would be a good replacement for him in NXT? Let us know in the comments below.
