Some people have to go. There are so many people on the WWE roster that the company has split them up into a few different rosters. That can make things a bit more interesting as WWE keeps Monday Night Raw and SmackDown fairly even, with NXT as a somewhat distant third. Then there is a fourth roster with NXT UK, which does not get quite the same level of attention. NXT UK has some talented wrestlers, but now one of them is on her way out.
NXT UK’s Candy Floss has announced that she is leaving the company. Floss spoke about her departure due to her contract expiring on Twitter, where she talked about how her mother passed away from breast cancer in May 2019 before signing with WWE in January 2020. Her mother’s death caused her to develop PTSD, which caused her to take time away from the ring to deal with her mental health. Floss said WWE could not have been more supportive and said she would be continuing her wrestling career. She has not wrestled since October 2019 and only wrestled for NXT UK before officially signing with WWE.

Opinion: I know Floss never really did much in NXT UK, but she had a pretty serious reason for not getting in the ring. Mental health recognition has come a long way in the last few years and it is the kind of thing that needed to be treated more seriously. It is good that she seems to be doing better and hopefully it is something that she can overcome to continue her promising in-ring career.
What do you think of Floss? Where will she wrestle next? Let us know in the comments below.
