Former WWE Tag Team Champion Scotty 2 Hotty is fast moving into his next business after leaving from WWE as a coach and producer earlier this month.
As seen in the Facebook post below, Scotty 2 Hotty is set to return in the ring on February 18, 2022, for ISPW Valentine’s Revenge incident. The pro wrestling veteran last competed in the ring in 2016 at Wrestling Revolver’s Premiere , which contains the main event of Rhino vs. Cameron Grimes (known as Trevor Lee at the time).
As noted earlier, Scotty 2 Hotty announced his departure from WWE last week through a social media post. The former coach and producer explained that he made the decision after realizing he was no longer passionate about the position.
“Today, I have requested to be released from World Wrestling Entertainment. 30 years ago, I stepped into the WWE ring for the first time. I have lived my dream more than 100 times. Some of my most special memories will always be from the past 5 years working with NXT. The black gold brand is something special and I am proud to be a small part of that.
“I always promised myself that I would never go into something just for the paycheck and that’s where I am. I told myself I would walk away if I got to that point, so that’s what I chose to do. Training and producing the stars of NXT will always be the highlight of my life. I love you more than you will ever know,” wrote Scotty 2 Hotty.
Scotty 2 Hotty, whose real name is Scott Garland, made his debut in the ring in 1989 and would work his way up to a WWE contract a decade later.
