Alexander Wolfe has recalled being sent home from WrestleMania as he and Sanity en route to the event after their segment on the show had been unceremoniously scrapped.
Alexander Wolfe, Eric Young, and Killian Dain made their main roster debut as Sanity in April 2018 as they looked to replicate the success they found in NXT on SmackDown. The group left behind Nikki Cross who remained on the black and gold brand bringing her own brand of chaos as a solo act to NXT.
Unfortunately success for the group never quite materialised on the blue brand despite the group being aligned with Shane McMahon for a spell in early 2019. McMahon had turned his back on former partner The Miz and the two were set to face off at WrestleMania 35 in MetLife Stadium.
Speaking to Sport1, Alexander Wolfe recalled the group originally having a part to play in that match before it was scrapped as they were travelling to the stadium.
“I would have loved to play at the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. At WrestleMania 35 we would have had a job in the match Shane McMahon vs. The Miz. We had pitched the idea to intervene and catch Miz doing a jump stunt that he had planned. We were already on-site in New York, we were told to come to the stadium for the rehearsals – and on the way there it was said ‘Guys, it won’t work, go home’. That was another real kick in the balls.”
“Shortly afterwards we were informed of the resolution. There are many empty promises made to you at WWE – ‘We have big plans for you, you will be at every show, blablabla.’ That’s how it is, I know the business and I’m not angry about it. But you just have to know that you cannot rely on certain statements, especially not if they come from third parties, not from the boss directly.”
In April 2019, one year after the group debuted on the main roster, Sanity was no more when Eric Young headed to Raw. One month later Dain returned to NXT with Wolfe heading across the pond to join Imperium in NXT UK. All three men have since been released from their contracts with the company as the company made significant budget cuts to their talent roster.
