Prince Nana Isn't Sure Why He Never Ended Up In WWE, Says It Would Be Hard To Get Him To Move

Prince Nana talks WWE opportunities.

Prince Nana was a staple in Ring of Honor for decades before finding a home in AEW, and subsequently Ring of Honor, following the pandemic. Though Nana worked as an enhancement talent at various points for WWE, and was highly touted in ROH as a manager, he never latched on to WWE.

Speaking to Chris Jericho on Talk is Jericho, Nana was asked if he ever had any interactions with WWE.

"Too many. Too many [laughs]. A lot of interactions, I wrestled Crash Holly at Madison Square Garden, rest in peace to him. It was for a TV taping, Metal. I also worked Steve Blackman. I was there during the WWF era, before they became WWE. In between that, I had different tryouts with the company where they brought me in to tryout as a manager. They know me pretty well. I don't know exactly where I never ended up getting a job there, but I'm a believer in everything happens for a reason. I didn't think that I wouldn't make it in pro wrestling, but thank God everything fell into the place it did because I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but AEW. I never went down there. The biggest thing, they know my pockets are deep and I may not want to relocate all the way to Florida for the rest of my life. I love living in New York City, New York City is my second home outside of Ghana. It would be very hard to get me (to move)," he said.

Nana has become one of the top acts on AEW/ROH TV, working alongside Swerve Strickland in the Mogul Embassy.
