Brodie Lee On The Pressure To Perform Outside Of WWE: "Now I Have To Prove It"

AEW superstar Brodie Lee was a recent guest on Busted Open Radio where The Dark Order leader speaks on finally getting opportunities in pro-wrestling that he was not getting in WWE. The "self-proclaimed" AEW champion cites a lack of opportunities as the main reason why he left his former company.

That’s the main reason why I didn’t want to be in WWE anymore because I knew those opportunities weren’t coming. No matter how hard I scratched and clawed no matter what I proved they weren’t coming. I wasn’t one of the chosen ones.

Lee then speaks about how there's an added pressure to perform since he's now creating on his own.

Now here I am creating it myself, but now it’s like I know I’m great at professional wrestling. I know I deserve these spots. Now I have to show up and prove it to other people. So now there’s a certain pressure on me because I don’t have anyone to blame anymore. So now here I am in these spots I was in the main event last night. I’m in the main event next Saturday. The pressure is there now because now I have to prove it.
