Mark Jindrax believes his maturity (or lack thereof) cost him dearly throughout his “mediocre” tenure with WWE.
Jindrak signed with the WWF in 2001 following the collapse of WCW and remained with the promotion until his release in 2005.
Arguably the most notable part of Jindrak’s career didn’t happen on screen, as fans know him for being an initial member of Evolution who was nixed in favor of Batista.
On the “Developmentally Speaking” podcast, Jindrak reflected on not taking his WWE career seriously. He said,
“I look back on it now and it was mediocre. I wasn’t like a jobber or anything or enhancement talent, I felt like I was in the middle of the pack. Obviously, with Evolution that could have been a big feather in my cap.
“I was kind of too immature. Orton and I liked to joke around a lot and I think that hurt me and my chances … I’m not going to point fingers at anyone, it was mainly my blame. I didn’t take the opportunity I had and run with it.
“My head wasn’t fully into the game, I was still young. From an athlete’s standpoint, in my mind, I was like, ‘I’m a phenomenal athlete so I’m always going to have a place,’ and then when I got released from WWE in 2005 it was nothing personal.”
Post-WWE, Jindrak has competed under the name Marco Corleone and is a former CMLL World Champion.
