In an interview with Talk Is Jericho (via Wrestling Inc, RJ City revealed that David Arquette was set to work with WWE prior to his deathmatch with Nick Gage, then they lost interest. Here are highlights:

On teaming with Arquette: “We wrestled and then we decided to team together. He concluded quickly that only when he teams with me does he not get hurt. He had a few accidents in the ring, and his wife certainly preferred me being involved. I was the guy who said, ‘Hey David, just say no.'”

On Arquette wanting to go to WWE: “What happened was, when he did the documentary, he was kind of dead set on, ‘I’ll be in the Royal Rumble.’ ‘That’ll be the end, or I’ll be in the Hall of Fame.’ And I tried to say, ‘David, you don’t know how this works.’ When we started doing our stuff, Scott D’Amore messaged me saying, ‘Hey, here’s a ring and our TV. Whatever you want to do.’ For Ring of Honor, my idea was ‘Let’s try to do this when they’re at Madison Square Garden. Let’s try to do that battle royal. That way, you can say you performed at the Garden.’ That’s an ending. But he was so WWE-set that we turned all of that down. Then they kind of played footsie with him. And I think when the light tube stuff happened, they thought, ‘This is our exit.'”
