Jordan Myles released a video on social media claiming the WWE to be racist and stating that he is “no longer employed” by the promotion.

Recently, a t-shirt was released by the WWE that many believed to resemble blackface makeup. Myles started an online push against the t-shirt, which was removed from the WWE’s custom print shop.

Myles, who has been off NXT television for several months, who previously performed under the ACH name, is a 31-year-old from Texas. Albert Christian Hardie Jr., his real name, previously competed for Ring of Honor, Chikara, Dragon Gate USA, Impact Wrestling and New Japan Pro-Wrestling among others.

Transcript Of The Video

“As of today I’d like to officially announced (expletive) WWE,” Myles said. “I am no longer employed and I refuse to work for racists. I (expletive) quit — (expletive) them — I hate that (expletive) company and everything they (expletive) stand for.

“All they ever did was hold our (expletive) people back. I do this (expletive) for the culture. I don’t need anyone’s (expletive) permission to do what I wanna do. Screw Jordan Myles. Don’t ever call me by that slave name. Call me ACH and don’t forget the super, bitch. I quit! (Expletive) you!”

He signed with the WWE in February of this year and made his NXT debut shortly after.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE had big plans for his future with the promotion.

“WWE wanted to push him. They had him win that tournament and he absolutely was going to be a major star on the NXT show,” Meltzer said. “That was the plan. Then it all unraveled, it all unraveled and that’s the basic situation.”
