Former WWE wrestler Tye Dillinger, now known as Shawn Spears in AEW, recently spoke to Wrestletalk and revealed the offer WWE gave him before he was released from the company in February 2019.

Spears revealed that WWE wanted him to become a head coach at the Performance Center and help the younger talent there.

Below is what Spears said:

“[In WWE], we were relied on a lot to help younger talent. We enjoy helping younger talent. I was asked to be a coach on numerous occasions before I left.”

Dillinger still trains wrestlers while working for AEW, as he runs the “Flatbacks Wrestling School” with WWE wrestler Tyler Breeze in Florida.
