It’s been quite a whirlwind few days for NXT Superstar Jordan Myles, former indie sensation ACH. An open tirade about the perceived racism of his NXT shirt escalated into a lash out at former employer Ring of Honor and personal attacks on ROH’s Jay Lethal. On Tuesday morning, he issued a lengthy apology on his recently opened Instagram account.

‪My tweets yesterday were completely disrespectful and were unprofessional.‬ ‪I have offend a ton of people and used anger to fuel me. ‬ ‪With that being said.. ‬ ‪I’d like to take this time to state an apologize for not giving a shit about what others think of me. ‪The anger I have inside of me has been built up for years now. Call me what you want, but you’ll never EVER be able to call me fake.‬ ‪ I’ve been lied too, used, and often mistreated by others who I viewed as associates.‬ ‪I’ve tipped toe around, kept quiet, even took some Ls when necessary. Emotionally charged up due to the shirt which triggered past emotions. I’m never going to be sorry for being me nor will I take back my words.‬ ‪I’m the damn professional wrestler in the WORLD & universe today.‬ ‪My ribs are touching and I’m tired of waiting. Time to snatch plates from those that have been eating far too long and always gets seconds while guys like myself have to eat crumbs from the floor like an unwanted child.‬ ‪For 4 years .. I gave my all to a promotion only to find out that you could only reach so high just as long as you didn’t surpass certain “people”.. I never begged for anything, I never kissed no ass, nor did rub elbows with the right ppl to get ahead. I HUSTTLED, WORKED HARD. ‪I didn’t call Hunter everyday to get booked in New Japan (s/o to NJPW) I earned it.‬ ‪I’ve always wanted to be “The Guy” and of no one will allow me to be in that spot.. I shall blaze my own trail to that spot rather it be by the approval of others or not.‬ ‪Today i shall continue to go the distance. Today I shall Lee moving forward. Today I shall rise up from my past ashes like a Dark Phoenix and promote change in this industry.‬ ‪Remember these words ‪I AM THE BEST IN THE WORLD! AND NO MAN OR WOMAN WILL STOP ME FROM BEING HONEST.‬ ‪GO THE DISTANCE…‬ ‪#MylesAhead‬ ‪#ForTheCulture

It should be noted that in reference to getting booked in New Japan, the “Hunter” that Myles is referring to isn’t a typo meaning Triple H – it’s in reference to Ring of Honor booker Hunter Johnson, who works as Delirious.

While Myles had garnered a lot of support over the NXT shirt issue, his turned attacks on Jay Lethal, and his dragging fellow WWE Superstars such as Cedric Alexander into the fray over the ROH issues began to upset other African-American wrestlers on the roster. Cedric Alexander had his own response when Myles mentioned his name:

Another veteran of the WWE locker room, Titus O’Neil, showed support over the T-shirt, but felt the deeper attacks on Monday were crossing the line.
