Tye Dillinger Announces Post-WWE Appearances

Former WWE star Tye Dillinger, who was granted his release from the company two weeks ago, has announced his first post-WWE appearances as seen below.

It looks like Dillinger will be using the name Shawn Spears on the independent scene, a name he used prior to his days in WWE.

John Cena On Becky Lynch’s Meteoric Rise

WWE star John Cena recently spoke with Uproxx about the meteoric rise of Becky Lynch in WWE, and during the interview, Cena paralleled Lynch’s new found success.

“I was about to be fired,” admitted Cena. “I was in a Becky Lynch-type scenario where I was forgotten and I was about to be let go and I took a chance on myself. I took a chance on redefining my character and it worked and I’ve never stopped. And I wasn’t the corporate headquarters first, second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth choice, but the audience began to make noise. And I connected with the audience and the rest is history. And that’s what’s wonderful about WWE. It truly is an enterprise system for any performer to connect with the audience. And once they connect with the audience, it doesn’t matter if they’re male or female. It doesn’t matter where you’re from. What you look like. You become a centerpiece of our entertainment and I think that’s the most fascinating thing about what we do. It truly is go out there and connect and then see what happens.”
