Willie Mack has been a much bigger part of the second season of Lucha Underground than he was during the show’s first season.

What’s most interesting is WWE was in the process of signing him back in 2014 and Mack would have been a part of NXT, but he was never officially signed.

During a recent interview with Ring Rust Radio, Willie Mack revealed why he wasn’t signed with WWE and what their signing process is like from the inside.

You can listen to the full interview right here. Below are some of the highlights:

“The signing process is a pain in the ass,” Mack said. “The thing is like a six-month waiting process, so I was already signed when people found out about it. They put you through a process including flying you out to Pittsburgh to meet their doctors and get background checks.”

The whole thing is stressful,” Mack explained. “Then at the end of the day, they said they didn’t like how the doctor read one of my test results. How my blood pressure was and how one of my knees felt. They said they couldn’t use me. They didn’t offer me anything, they just said that they couldn’t use me down there. The funny thing about that is when I asked to see the reports from my medical stuff to see what was wrong, do you think I have seen any of that stuff yet? Nope.”
