Tomko walks out...***SPOILERS***

Tyson Tomko just walked out on WWE.

 

He was promised a push with Snitsky as a tag team afer Mania 22, but on Heat this week Goldust and Snitsky teamed as a comedy face undercard team as they are both 'freaks' (WM 22 Segment)

 

Since he realised his push wasnt happening, he asked for a release and got it.

 

It's interesting, but I can't honestley say that I care either way.

Good riddance really. He avoided the releases last year, and has lead on to doing nothing worthwhile from then until now, I'm still surprised as to how he avoided the earlier cuts this year let alone last years. Snitsky/Dust seems far more interesting then Tomko/Snitsky ever did, but the team did have its moments like the comedy skit with Cena's walk around and catching Tomko/Snitsky. Why he stayed beyond splitting with Christian is beyond me as well.

 

Heidenreich and Tomko now gone from the debutants whom injured Stevie. If only Masters wasn't slowly getting over with people (god knows why), could make a clean sweep.

TNA here he comes.

 

I sincerely hope not, Tomko was one of the worst wrestlers they had. I can't see him getting anywhere in TNA.

What about him coming in as Travis Tomko to feud with his former mentor Chrstian Cage over the NWA title?

Do we reckon Tomko reckons he could make better money elsewhere? I mean, even without a push, he's still being paid and depending on how long his contract had left, he may have thrown away a tidy sum of money. Maybe he didn't get that much. I'm sure he still had to be at the tv shows even if he wasn't used, aswell as house shows.

 

Maybe he's a hot shot lawyer, who gave wrestling a try, but it didn't quite work out. Although, I suspect there could be a mighty fine argument that he's not actually a hot shot lawyer.

I hope he's a hot shot lawyer that solves crimes in his spare time. Maybe he fled the 'E', because he wasn't to confident with his drug test results?

 

I'm sure he would tell me that was hearsay.

I couldnt care less' date=' all i care about is that Tomko will be alitte more out of pocket, didnt think of that did ya Tommy.[/quote']

You couldn't care less about him leaving but you care about his financial situation? How caring of you. And I'm pretty sure being 'alitte more out of pocket' did cross his mind.

 

Tomko was only useful as Christian's problem solver, so no harm done at all.

I like Goldust as a single act. What is it with him, has the gimmick never really allowed him to have much success? Probably, although I do remember he had that intercontinental title run, I wonder if he'll get to around that kind of level again on RAW?

Missed opptunity.

 

I think Snitsky and Tomko

 

I think BEARDS!

 

<shudder> I'm thinking wierd goatees and homosexual freaks. Not a good advert for WWE, I would say. Tomko going is probably 6 months wages down the pan and 6 months too late. Won't miss him as he wasn't that memorable.

Good for him really. But I can't say i'm bothered, without being a bodyguard nothing really worked for him and when Christian went to Smackdown he was done in my oppinion.

I could care less about Tomko, i haven't seen him in a good match ever. The guy has always seemed to boring and not entertaining and having no character, Snitsky as much as he sucks in the ring he was some charsma and a good funny character it was his fault Tomko left

WWE.com: Is it true that you requested your release from WWE to go work in Japan?

 

Tyson Tomko: That’s correct.

 

WWE.com: What prompted that decision?

 

Tomko: It was a mutual agreement between me and WWE. I talked to WWE officials and there’s not anything going on with me right now. So, rather than sit around, I’m taking matters into my own hands. I’m going to go over to Japan. I’ve always admired the style there — the brutality. I’m a big fan of Bruiser Brody. And I just want to go over there and experience that. And while there’s a lull in my career here at WWE, I decided to take the opportunity to go over to Japan and hone my skills.

 

 

WWE.com: Do you feel you were underutilized or improperly used in WWE?

 

Tomko: I think it’s easy to say that “I was underutilized,” but I think what would be more politically correct to say is that you underutilized yourself. I think I can and will be a bigger asset to this company.

 

WWE.com: What kind of opportunity would you need in WWE to show that you can be a bigger asset?

 

Tomko: I don’t think it was anything I was doing. The bottom line is that people sit by sometimes — and I’ve seen it happen to a handful of guys — where they just sit around and don’t do anything about their career. But I know I can be a top-caliber athlete for this company. I just think that rather than sit around and wait for the opportunity, I’m going to take it. Instead of waiting around for a handout, I’m going to go make my opportunity. Then, I’m going to come back and there’s going to be no question as to my ability at that point.

 

WWE.com: Do you have any plans finalized for wrestling with a particular promotion in Japan?

 

Tomko: There’s nothing completely finalized. I have been in talks as recently as this morning, and there had been e-mail communication. So, I can’t go on record as of this point, but I’m definitely — with 100 percent certainty — going to be appearing in Japan within the next couple of months.

 

WWE.com: Looking back, how do you feel about your time in WWE?

 

Tomko: Very positive. I think I’ve gone out on a good note and everything I’ve done here had been a testament to my abilities. I think that if I went any further without doing what I’m doing, then it could have jeopardized my stature, if you will. So, I’m going to take a step backward and go five steps forward.

 

WWE.com: So, you feel you’re leaving WWE on good terms where you might return in the future?

 

Tomko: Absolutely. I shook hands with Vince McMahon yesterday afternoon as I was leaving, and I believe the exact saying was: “The door is wide open.”

 

WWE.com: So it doesn’t sound like there are any hard feelings.

 

Tomko: None whatsoever. The company as a whole was fantastic to me. I’m not bitter in any way. This is just something that I wanted to do, and I’m just fortunate that there was a lull in what I was doing where I was able to go to Japan while not taking away from what WWE was doing with me. I came from being a bodyguard for a rock band, so I never got the opportunity to go work in areas like Japan or the independents or anything like that. And I want to experience that. So, while there was an opportunity, I decided to do this thing. I’ll come back, and when I come back I’ll be bigger than ever.

 

WWE.com: What were your favorite moments during your time in WWE?

 

Tomko: I have a few favorites. I had an opportunity to wrestle with Chris Benoit a few times. I also wrestled with Hulk Hogan in a six-man tag-team match with Christian and Chris Jericho as my partners and John Cena, HBK and Hulk Hogan as my opponents. That’s a match that I was really fortunate to be a part of. Also, I got the opportunity to face Ric Flair. Those are all points in my career where I would have never thought those opportunities would present themselves, and they did. I’m very fortunate and grateful for that.

 

WWE.com: There are going to be a lot of WWE Superstars who will read this on WWE.com today. Do you have any message for anyone you didn’t get a chance to speak to one-on-one before your departure?

 

Tomko: I just want to say to everybody I had an opportunity to work with in WWE, if I didn’t personally thank them, I’d like to thank them now. In times to come, we will definitely have a future meeting — and hopefully I’ll be on the good end of it. Because when and if I do come back to this company, any Superstar in my way, I’m going to take him out.

No big loss as he never made it very much onto TV, I hope he does something in Japan and earns himself some cash :)
