Lars Sullivan seemingly had the world at his feet after making his televised debut in 2017, with a promotion to the main roster fast-tracked because of how high WWE was on him. However, his push ended almost as suddenly when it was revealed that the big man had acted in homosexual pornographic content many years prior.
This controversy has led to Sullivan almost vanishing from the pro wrestling scene, as he’s not been seen or heard of since his release from WWE. In fact, he even stated in an interview with Fightful that he is “likely done” with the business.
Adding fuel to this speculation, Road Dogg noted recently on an episode of the Oh You Didn’t Know podcast that it was Vince McMahon’s pressure that caused the former NXT monster to quit wrestling.
“Oh, Dexter Lumis, Dexter Lumis is a great guy. I didn’t get to know Lars that well, to be quite honest with you. Look, I thought he was, I thought Lars was going to be something special in this industry, a good guy when I met him, respectful. I don’t want to use the word in a derogatory way but freak of nature, like he’s, he has, I don’t know what it’s called, but gigantism or whatever. But so he was probably six, two or three, but 320 pounds of solid muscle like man, you know what I mean? Like it was incredible. And so I just thought oh, this guy is going to be somebody, Vince thought the same thing. I think it put too much pressure on the kid and he kind of backed out of it all. You know what I mean? And so I don’t know but I thought, I thought he’s gonna be somebody. And the other kid is somebody who just beat Miz, and won about 12 grand the other night in a ladder match on Monday Night Raw.”
