Source: Wrestling 101Wrestling 101 has an interview with former WWE Superstar Ezekiel Jackson. Below are a few highlights:
Having a stare-down with Triple H:
"The first time we had a stare down it was post match with me and Triple H, who was WWE Champion at the time. I was like, here I am a month and a half into my time on the main roster and I'm starring down with Triple H, and I was like, 'holy mother of god', it was my dream becoming a reality. I was living my dream and getting to share the ring and be on TV with people that I had been watching for years, wanting to emulate and meet them, and there I was working with them!"
His WWE release:
"I had surgery in January for a hernia that I had developed over the past year being home and lifting heavy. I received a letter saying that my contract was going to be ending on April 6th and that was it, till this day I still haven't had a phone call from anybody from WWE, so it was bitter sweet.
"I got to attend and enjoy WrestleMania 30 with Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Stone Cold starting the show, I was a little disappointed with the streak ending. At the same time that was my last day with the company, I enjoyed my time there and I wish I could have another chance but I believe things happen for a reason and I'm ready for whatever is in store for me."
What Vince McMahon was like as a boss:
"With Vince, in a way you held him in such high regard because he has accomplished so much with his business, he has done so much for this business. I found him to be very personable but no matter who you are and how cool he is this guy is still your boss. In a way I respected him for everything he has done and I treated him as a boss, if you passed him in the corridor you would shake his hand or give him a hug and talk to him for a second or two but he was always just so busy, I never wanted to take up too much of his time because he has got a big business to run."
If he would return to WWE or sign with TNA:
"I've basically been inactive since July 2012, I got to be a part of WrestleMania 29 in New York which was cool being from New York and I spent three weeks at NXT last year and that has been it since July 2012.
"I've left my door open for anything; I'm in the mind frame of whatever comes now I'll do. I love wrestling and I love training, which I'm focusing on a lot with the website and I'm getting into motivational speaking. I'm trying to use whatever talents I have to not just help myself but to help benefit other people."
