He had been a part of WWE since 2009, with the exception of the little over a year between 2021 and 2022 when he was abruptly fired. With a tense storyline and mysterious vignettes, Rotunda made a triumphant return to WWE in September, which helped boost television ratings.
Rotunda was descended from wrestlers. In the WWE as Irwin R. Schyster and in other promotions as Michael Wallstreet or by using his real name, his father Mike rose to notoriety.
A professional wrestler who belonged to the renowned Four Horsemen stable and was one of the most well-known sportsmen of the 1980s and early 1990s, Barry Windham was Rotunda’s uncle. WWE wrestler Taylor, Rotunda’s brother, has previously used the ring name Bo Dallas.
