Former indie superstar ACH, who has been working for NXT under the name Jordan Myles, has been in the news of late for his disdain over a racially insensitive T-Shirt that was released by WWE. It resulted in a tirade of accusations of systemic racism within the WWE that filtered over into rants against his former employer, Ring of Honor, and their “Uncle Tom”, Jay Lethal. He would later apologize for some of his comments in regard to past co-workers. ACH has since been somewhat quiet since those Tweets several weeks ago, but he dropped his biggest bombshell yet on Wednesday afternoon, when he announced he was quitting WWE via his Twitter. He also returned his Twitter handle to his former moniker, ACH.
To make his words crystal clear, he followed up with a “PG” version.
There has been no comment from the WWE on the news yet, but it appears ACH has decided he is officially done with the company. In his video, which he posted live on Wednesday night, he stated, “As of today, I’d like to officially announce that I quit f**king WWE. I am no longer an employee, I refuse to work for racists. I f**king QUIT. F**K THEM. I hate that f**king company, and everything they f**king stand for, all they did was ever hold our people back. I do this shit for the culture, I don’t need anyone’s f**king 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!”
He followed up with a longer message minutes later.
As ACH, Albert Christian Hardie Jr. became one of the top indie superstars in the US, starting out in the Texas indie scene in the mid-2000s. In 2012, he joined ROH, where he remained until 2016, before departing to remain on the international indie circuit. He would also work with NJPW starting in 2016, up until signing with the WWE in late 2018. His last WWE match was an NXT Live Event on September 21, before leaving on an undisclosed medical leave.
