WWE is reportedly interested in bringing back No Way Jose. The former superstar was released back in April as part of the company’s cost-cutting measures to contend with the economic uncertainty of the pandemic.
Speculation of Jose’s return has supposedly been discussed backstage this week. The report indicated that several employees from the NXT brand are under the impression that WWE’s recent trademark filing for “The Way” is for Jose.
It is unknown if there are plans for him to be repackaged upon his purported return. His previous character didn’t receive a lot of air time on the promotion’s weekly television shows, and he was predominantly used as an enhancement talent during his tenure.
Jose wasn’t a fan of his gimmick either. As The Inquisitr previously documented, he revealed that he wanted to portray a serious character and participate in meaningful storylines.
Prior to joining the company, he was known as an arrogant heel on the independent circuit. However, he quickly had to learn how to act like a comedic babyface when he was hired by Vince McMahon’s corporation.
The article highlighted that Jose has revamped himself since leaving the company. He recently showed off his new look, which may have caught the attention of his former employers. Due to the pandemic, however, he hasn’t had many opportunities to compete.
