Aiden English has something to say and he does it in a unique way.
While other wrestlers are doing interviews and making exclusive news, English took to social media to express his views. English performed a poem on wrestling, addressing the industry, and how it remains essential and interesting.
Let's talk about wrestling, about the state of our art
Desperate for showtime yet we're still world's apart
Except in the sunshine state, where they're blasting the grappling
On those cable stations
But there's essential potential all across this nation
Black, white, gay, straight, he/her, or they
An army of artists with something to say
Looking for a way to use their voices
But it's hard to be the voice of the voiceless when there are no voices
Desperate to lock up, but still locked down
Trying to put 'smiles on faces,' but there's no one around
So when they emerge stronger, hearts and minds conditioned well
Storytelling athletes with a story to tell
Four sides, three ropes, two souls, one mat
It's a physical poetry -- blending fiction with fact
Independent contractors with independent dreams
Cause trust me, this carny life is a lot more than it seems
Be careful, be smart, be safe, but be ready
Because there's a roster of talent who's been training steady
Hungry, focused, clawing for the top
So let's keep talking about wrestling
And let's never stop
English signed with WWE in 2012, mainly working in a tag team, though sometimes shelved. His most success came with Rusev Day, potential Tag Team Champions, but never used that way. Later, he served as 2015 Live commentator.
English was released by WWE on April 15. It is unknown next, where he'll be seen.
