Mark Jindrak Discusses His WWE Release and Working in Japan
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.17.2013



- Former WWE performer Mark Jindrak, who now works as Marco Corleone in Mexico, recently wrote about his WWE release and more. Here are the highlights…

On July 5, 2005, I received the call from then head of talent John Laranitus, saying that WWE had released me. It sure was a weird feeling. Wrestling was the only real job I had ever held. Was it the end? Was my career going to be best remembered for a "Reflection of Perfection" gimmick? Or would I be remembered as the henchman in the Kurt Angle faction along with Luther Reigns? Actually what most people now remember about my WWE days is something that never happened. I was locked and ready to be the fourth member of the prestigious group Evolution. But…. at the last moment they pulled the plug on me and later replaced me with Batista. Damn!! (Ron Simmons voice) haha.

Now I wasn't just going to quit. Shortly after my release in '05, I linked up with Matt Morgan and we did numerous tours to Japan as a tag team in New Japan and Hustle. This went on til early 2006. I had decent success but the truth of the matter was Japan wasn't for me. The tours were few are far between, jet lag and long flights killed me and the language barrier was really difficult. Although I loved Japan, I didn't think it was a place that I would further my wrestling career."
