Sean Waltman Discusses The Lack Of Creative Freedom Breeding Frustration

Over a week ago, reports emerged suggesting that WWE and their former Cruiserweight Champion Neville could have mended fences after a disagreement saw him disappear from programming.

Another former Cruiserweight Champion in Sean Waltman has had his fair share of frustration with the companies he's worked for. On last week's X-Pac 1,2,360 Podcast, Waltman said he understands where Neville is coming from.

"I'm happy to know that they have ironed everything out. Here's the thing -- It's not about how much money you can make on the indies, it's about your sanity. It's about when you get back there and they start f-ng with you, and burying you. You can go crazy dude. Creative satisfaction is highly underrated. It's right up there with money -- pretty close," said Waltman.

Neville walked out of WWE last month after growing frustrated with a number of situations. WWE wanted to retain his services, but no word yet on if the two sides were able to hash out an agreement, or how it could all play out. WWE does have the ability to freeze contracts when someone refuses to perform.
