There’s more to it. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster and sometimes the company has to let some of them go. Occasionally WWE will release some wrestlers from their contracts and turn them into free agents, which is the kind of thing that can devastate some wrestlers. That was the case again this week, and now we know some more about one of the wrestlers, including from said wrestler himself.
WWE released five wrestlers from their NXT contracts this week, including Bodie Hayward. According to Wrestling Observer Live, Hayward was described as “a handful”, though it is not clear that that entails. Hayward was involved in the Chase University story and it was not something as simple as dropping a wrestler in the middle of a storyline. Hayward has also posted a video on his release, saying that he is humiliated but here to stay.
Hayward had a lot to say. Check out what he got off his chest:
Opinion: I’m not sure what happened with Hayward but at the end of the day, he is someone who had all kinds of charisma and was starting to get better in the ring. It would make sense if there was more going on behind the scenes, but hopefully everything works out for him in the end. Hayward has talent, though it seems that there is something else going on behind the scenes and that explains a few things.
What do you think of Hayward? Where do you see him wrestling next? Let us know in the comments below.
