Former WWE Superstar EJ Nduka spoke to Wrestling Inc about the kind of sacrifices professional wrestlers make to pursue that dream. Getting an opportunity with WWE is huge for anyone who aspires to be a professional wrestler, but when released without notice, it’s hard to go back from that point.

“That’s a big deal, man. We moved from Southern California when we arrived in Orlando. My wife had just graduated from law school, I had a very successful medical spa business that I ran. I ended up selling it to come and pursue this dream.

“As fans and people outside of the company, you don’t realize that a lot of these people are uprooting their whole family. They have jobs, they have careers, they have things they were doing before they got this opportunity. H/t Wrestling Inc

This isn’t the first time someone has spoken about the significant impact the sudden release has on professional wrestlers.
