American Politician Reveals Why He Couldn’t Return to the WWE Over a Misinterpretation With Vince McMahon: “That’s Where I Was Told I Lost Them”

Vince McMahon is known to work with stars with whom he has had issues in the past because, at the end of the day, he is a businessman first and foremost. Recently, former WWE superstar Matt Morgan spoke about a potential return to the WWE. The American politician, who served as mayor of Longwood from 2019 to 2020, was expected to make a comeback in the ring, but things didn’t work out.

During a recent episode of Two Man Power Trip, Matt Morgan addressed what went wrong in his pitch to return to the WWE scene. The 46-year-old wrestler created an elaborate backstory that had all the potential for fans to get hyped. He even took some inspiration from Ivan Drogo from Rocky IV for his grand return.

In the podcast, Morgan said, “I would have the top trainers I’d have the top dieticians just like Ivan Drago did if you remember in Rocky IV.”

The two-time Impact World Tag Team Champion was ambitious about his return to the WWE, during his stint with Impact Wrestling. However, things couldn’t fall into place exactly as he wanted.

Morgan added “So i put all that together, and where I lost them is where I said that ‘this would be … synthetically created perfect giant.’ That’s where I was told I lost them.” Morgan claimed that Vince McMahon and the WWE weren’t too keen on the idea of Morgan being a synthetically created giant.

In the same podcast, Matt Morgan explained that the term ‘synthetic’ was misunderstood by the WWE representatives. They thought it would hint at the usage of physically enhancing substances, which was not his intention.

Morgan said “this was a time when … you know wrestlers were not supposed to have anything to do (with) steroids or anything like that. So synthetically created could mean that and that’s not what it was supposed to mean.” Therefore, due to these creative differences, both parties abandoned the idea of his return.
