Last week, it was reported that Leva Bates, known to NXT fans as “Blue Pants” was no longer involved with NXT and WWE. It’s heavily speculated that Bates had rubbed other NXT talents the wrong way with her attitude and her spot on the NXT roster despite not being officially signed to NXT. Bates apparently made some mistakes in speaking her mind about her character and role.

However, there are now reports of further backstage issues involving Bates and her time in NXT:

PWMania is reporting from a very well-placed NXT source that Bates heat within WWE was due to her apparent lack of interest for her spot and that she was unappreciative of her position. Bates was seen on her phone at and during NXT TV tapings. Apparently, she wasn’t paying much attention to what was going on backstage.

During SummerSlam weekend, there was apparently an incident in Brooklyn where Bates became intoxicated in public. Following the SummerSlam pay-per-view, Bates reportedly had drank too much at an outing and acted very inappropriately. WWE Corporate employees from Stamford were at the gathering, and her behavior did not go over well. The next morning, this incident led to Bates also missing her flight back to Florida with the rest of the crew.
