Austin Aries felt that WWE's creative process stifled artistic freedom and found it ''tedious''.
The 'IMPACT Wrestling' champion recently rejoined the company, and he has opened up on his spell as part of WWE's Cruiserweight division on '205 Live', which came to an end when he was released from his contract in July last year.
Aries has now bemoaned the interference behind the scenes in his in-ring character, insisting he didn't that sort of input because he's been developing his on-screen alter ego for years.
Speaking in a media conference call this week, he said: ''The process is a little tedious. To me, it takes a lot of the artistic and creative freedoms away from the wrestlers. I don't know a writer who would know my voice better than myself. I've been doing this a long time. I'll say this, if there were ever any writers who had frustrations with me they certainly never expressed them to me. It was something that was never brought to my attention.''
Aries, 39, admitted although no one confronted him, he may have been difficult to work with because he would always suggest changes to his character and script, even if the actual process was lengthy.
He added: ''Here's an interesting thing with that, I'll bet the writers didn't probably like working with me very much. Understand that in that environment when I am given something that the writers hand me if I have anything that I think should be adjusted, or maybe things that I would not personally say, as someone who has done this for seventeen years and as a writer it isn't always so easy to just change those things. They then have to go march back to the office and have those things changed for them.''
