That’s one way to go. With so many talented wrestlers in WWE, it can be difficult to find something for everyone to do. This can make for some strange and often annoying stretches where a wrestler is not around as often as they could be for one reason or another. Now we know something about where a missing star is and why he has been gone for so long.

During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was asked about the status of Roderick Strong. While Strong has not been used by WWE since October, he is still under contract with the company and has not been released. Instead, WWE is simply not using him at the moment. It is not clear what caused them to go in this direction or when Strong might wrestle again.

Strong can be a star. Check out what he can do in the ring:

Opinion: I’m not sure what made WWE change their minds on Strong, but he has gone from being a featured regular on NXT TV to not being around whatsoever. It would be nice to see him back as he is more than talented enough to be a star, but that isn’t going to matter if WWE isn’t interested in using him. Hopefully he gets back sooner than later, as NXT could certainly use him.

What do you think of Strong? How could NXT use him? Let us know in the comments below.
