Wesley Blake Explains Why He Dropped Cowboy Gimmick Before Moving To WWE Main Roster (Video)

Vince McMahon doesn’t like cowboys.

This is something that Westin Blake, formerly known as Wesley Blake, revealed during his recent appearance on The Angle Podcast.

While on the pro wrestling program, the former WWE Superstar explained why the cowboy character he was using during his WWE NXT run was nixed by the WWE Chairman before his move to the main roster.

Featured below is an excerpt from the show where he shares the details.

“After about 6 months, I kind of got the impression or I was told that, ‘Hey Vince McMahon doesn’t really like cowboys. He thinks it’s kind of overdone especially in the wrestling business. We are going to have to switch up your character and pitching some more ideas.”
