Former WWE Superstar Tucker (Levi Cooper) has released a new video statement on his WWE release.

The former Heavy Machinery member made several quick tweets after WWE announced his release last Thursday, even a comment against WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon, which you can see below. This new video statement features Tucker giving thanks to everyone involved with his WWE experience, including a nod to the behind-the-scenes workers.

“You know, the weekend has come and gone, and I’ve had a chance over these last few days to do some reflecting, and so I wanted to take this time to say thank you,” Tucker said. “Thank you to all of the men and women who made my time in WWE a more enjoyable experience. The men and woman of the locker room, so many incredibly talented individuals doing so many great things. I learned so much from you guys, and I appreciate it.

“And the men and women on the production side… behind the cameras, and the lights and the microphones, and setting up and tearing down the rings, and the monitors. We truly would not have a show and it wouldn’t even be an ounce of what it is without all the time, effort and dedication that you guys put in, week in and week out, behind the scenes. I learned a lot from you as well, so thank you.”

Tucker continued and admitted that he and upper management didn’t always see eye-to-eye, but he’s grateful for the opportunity they gave him. He also said he’s not sure what the future holds, but he looks forward to using the lessons & skills he developed while with WWE.

“To upper management – even though we maybe didn’t see eye to eye on everything, you guys gave me an opportunity to do something that I love and to provide for my family,” Tucker continued. “And I’ll always be grateful for that. So thank you.

“And finally, I wanna say that moving forward, I don’t know exactly what the future holds for Levi Cooper, but I do know this – I am infinitely excited to use the lessons and skills that I developed while in WWE over these last seven years and apply them to whatever it is moving forward. And lastly I want to say guys, I hope you have a great week, Happy Monday, keep grinding.”

Tucker last competed in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on the final SmackDown before WrestleMania 37. He had been with WWE since late 2013, and leaves the company a two-time WWE 24/7 Champion.

As we’ve noted, WWE made budget cuts last Thursday and released Tucker and 9 other Superstars – Samoa Joe, Peyton Royce, Mickie James, Mojo Rawley, Chelsea Green, Wesley Blake, Billie Kay, Kalisto and Bo Dallas. These wrestlers will be free to work with other promotions after their 90-day non-competes expire on Wednesday, July 14.
