They didn’t quite make it. WWE has a lot of resources available to use, with the NXT developmental system being one of the strongest. The company is able to build up its next generation of stars in-house, meaning they know what they are getting before the callups. Not everyone can make it though, as wrestlers can be released from NXT, which is what has taken place again.
PWInsider.com is reporting five more releases from NXT. The names released include:
Hayward is the most prominent name on the list of released names, having been the main student at Andre Chase University until Duke Hudson took his place. Jacobs had been a semi regular in the NXT women’s division and had made semi-regular appearances on NXT television. There is no word on if more releases are coming.
Opinion: It is never nice to see wrestlers being released, but sometimes WWE has to clear out room to bring in some new stars. That seems to be the case again, though it is a bit strange to see Hayward let go. Hayward had been right there in the middle of the Andre Chase University storyline, which had been one of the most entertaining things in NXT. I’m sure some of them will get a look elsewhere, but this is always a bit rough to see.
Which release surprises you the most? Which name has a future elsewhere in wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
