Another one out the door? The WWE landscape has changed in all kinds of ways over the last few years, including several wrestlers leaving. A lot of these names have been part of NXT, which has been completely overhauled as well. There are not that many wrestlers left from NXT’s glory days, and now it seems that another one might be on their way out of the company as well.
According to PWInsider.com, Kyle O’Reilly’s WWE contract is set to expire in December and WWE is currently discussing his future in the company. Internally, O’Reilly is said to be the #2 babyface in NXT behind NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa. Since the NXT 2.0 relaunch, O’Reilly has been teaming with Von Wagner. There is no word on what O’Reilly will do, though there is a chance that he could re-sign with WWE.
O’Reilly has done some very good things in NXT. Check out his time in the company:
Opinion: As much as I’d like to see O’Reilly stick around, it would not surprise me at all to see him leave as well. NXT has purged the majority of their older roster and O’Reilly is another one of the stars from the previous era. It isn’t like he has been doing much of anything of note in recent months, but hopefully he sticks around and does something good. I’m sure he’ll be used somewhere, but it might not be in NXT.
Where do you think O’Reilly will go? Where do you want him to go? Let us know in the comments below.
