Tye Dillinger parted ways with WWE a while ago, but his fiance Peyton Royce is currently one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. She recently spoke on Chasing Glory along with Billie Kay where she talked about Dillinger’s decision to leave WWE.
Tye was very open about his desire to leave WWE and spoke about it to get ahead of rumors once it was officially announced that he would be leaving the company. Peyton Royce understood his decision and said that her fiance just loves to wrestle and in WWE he was unable to do that.
“He wants to wrestle. He loves wrestling, and that’s what he wants to do. And so he’s going to go make himself happy and he’s going to do that.”
“He used to ask me, ‘Babe, would you still, like, um, what do you think’ and I would always say, ‘I just want you to be happy and whatever, whatever that is, you do that, and I will support you because as long as you’re happy, I need you to be happy.’”
Dillinger started accepting dates for indie events when he was released and Cody Rhodes said he loves Tye and will offer him help when he needs it.
We might be seeing Tye Dillinger in AEW in the future, where he might be called Shawn Spears if he does sign with the company. We will keep you updated regarding Tye’s AEW status if we get to know more.
