- Former WWE star Trevor Murdoch, who had recent tryout matches with the company, says he’s returning soon. Here are some highlights from an interview with Pitch.com.

How do you feel about returning to WWE?

I’ve been doing this since I was 18 years old. So I’m at an age where when I went to WWE the first time I was 25 years old and I’m really excited that I’m still at a young enough age that I’m going to be able to go back and do some good things on TV. My [5-year-old] son is now old enough to see me and understand that daddy is on TV and he loves pro wrestling. So I’m fired up to be able to get back to working on TV again for sure.

You recently had a tryout with WWE. How did that go?

They went great actually. The first night I wrestled Evan Bourne. The second night I wrestled Jey Uso. My concern going back wasn’t the wrestling part. It was there’s a lot of new faces on the WWE roster. They’re almost all new faces. And I was concerned that I was going to get back there and on one was going to know me or everyone was going to snub me a little bit. “Who’s this guy?” and “he’s just going to try to take our spot.” But when I went back, everyone was super nice and were extremely respectful and excited to see me. It was a very welcoming experience. Not to mention that I had two really good matches.

Do you have an indication of what WWE wants you to do when you get there?

No, actually. I’m kind of an open book and can do whatever I gotta do to have a good time but also to put on some good matches and also focus more on the sports entertainment side rather than just the pro wrestling. When I went in the first time, I wouldn’t say I was naive, but I was more focused on the just the wrestling part. Whereas, now that I’m a little bit older and I look back on it … I’m going to focus just as much on the entertainment part as I am the wrestling part. The last time I was there, I was like, I was trained by Harley Race. The cream will rise to the top. I’m a pro wrestler. As long as I have great matches, everything will be fine. That’s only one part of it.

  • Marky Mark

    Drop any gimmick related to white trash crap like country hick or blackjack cowboy fuck. Do something new, get with the fucking 2011′s

  • Mike

    I think they will use him a couple of times….then he will just fade away like the rest of them

  • Hunter

    I did think of Harris and Murdoch when I read this. Would make a good tag team, but of course the E don’t do tag teams…

  • nick

    Will return with husky Harris and they’ll rehash the blackjacks gimmick again

  • cam

    his a good tag team guy like a mary jarnatrty not a good single guy but a good tag guy

  • Hunter

    Murdoch is a good wrestler, don’t be mistaken.

  • Sammo

    Murdoch says he was more focused on the wrestling part?! … he used to stand on the announcers’s desk and belt out country and western songs!

    I liked him though, I always thought he had potential. It’ll be good to see him back.

    Guy not fuy. Stupid phone.

  • Valo487

    I have nothing against the fuy, but why is he coming back? I don’t get why they want him now.

  • scooter

    @orton that guy burned his bridges with when he buried the company and repeatedly talked shit about guys like triple h and undertaker

  • Bill

    @IGWCm that would be hilarious. Maybe a storyline where Shelton’s mama is Mark Henry’s baby mama…

  • In Grind We Crust

    I was hoping for Shelton Benjamin :( …and his momma no doubt.

  • Seth

    It was “former tag team champion.” It wasn’t going to be a big name. Also he said wrestling or wrestler eight different time.. That can’t be good.

  • Camille

    Why couldn’t it have been Road Dogg?!

  • Orton

    I read the title before i clicked and was hopin for paul london……

  • Effmenow

    RIP Lance Cade.
