Former WWE Star Says He Has Declined an Offer to Return to the Raw Brand, Takes a Shot at TNA

Former WWE and TNA star Mike Knox has posted a statement on Twitter revealing he was offered, but declined, a deal to return to WWE and the Raw brand. Knox issued the statement below.
As everybody knows, I am a former WWE and TNA Superstar. As everybody also knows, WWE has been attempting to reach out to former WWE stars to help build the RAW and Smackdown Live dynasty. Recently, I was approached by a man named Mark Carrano. He offered me a full-time deal to return to the RAW brand. I kindly declined. I’m 38 years old, my body isn’t capable of being a full-time WWE wrestler anymore like it was back in 2006, 10 years ago. I like the idea of being on the independent scene, mainly because I get to pick the dates I want to work. After recent concussion issues, I was advised to retire. I said no. 2 months later, I made a remarkable recovery and was cleared to compete. Although, I just didn’t feel as good as I used to when I wrestled full time. Since February 2016, I have been semiretired. If WWE decides to reconsider and offer me a part-time deal, I’d gladly accept it. I have no bad blood with WWE, I just can’t physically compete full-time anymore. As far as a TNA return goes, consider it off the table. At least WWE knows how to pay their talents on time, just saying…
