Scotty 2 Hotty aka Scott Garland issues a public statement where he revealed he has asked for his WWE release.
As per him, Garland has been working with the industry for thirty years, but now it was time to quit. He did not want a paycheck to be the only factor motivating him to continue working with WWE. Now, he’s reached a point where that seems to be the case. As a result, he wants to bid a fond farewell to the WWE Universe.
However, even as he wants to leave behind WWE, he’s taking the memories along with him. Especially the ones where he coached and produced the WWE NXT talents.
Undoubtedly, Scotty 2 Hotty was an important member of WWE and WWE NXT, and the talents, crew, and everyone else will miss his presence!
