— Commenting on his recent release from WWE during an interview with Wrestling101.com, Chris Masters says he didn’t receive the opportunity he feels he deserved.
“We didn’t part on bad terms, for me personally this time was very different from the first time I was released. I do feel like I worked my ass off and they should’ve at least given me another shot,” Masters said.
“The Masterpiece” also wonders why WWE opted to keep certain talents employed over him.
“I look at other guys on the roster and I don’t mean to mention names but people like JTG and a handful of other guys and you think, “your going to keep this guy but your going to get rid of me?”
