Two more NXT talent cuts

By Jason Powell, Prowrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Sage Beckett and Ming (Gu Guangming) were released from their WWE/NXT deals on Thursday, according to Casey Michael of Squaredcirclesirens.com/.

Powell’s POV: Beckett worked the Mae Young Classic and was previously known as Rosie Lottalove. She completely transformed her body since the Lottalove days by losing over 100 pounds. I was told that she was actually working behind the scenes on color commentary and the reviews for her work were positive. Meanwhile, Guangming is a former super-heavyweight boxer from China who had been with the company since September 2016.

  1. With all the praise that is lavished on HHH it seems that most of the talent brought up from NXT were successful wrestlers on the independent scene. Other than Corbin and a few of the new women I am hard pressed to think of anyone from NXT that did not have a successful career beforehand.

    • Braun Strowman, Elias (experience on indies but was not a star), Alexa Bliss (and some other women as you mentioned), Big E, Roman Reigns, Chad Gable, and Jason Jordan are some who come to mind. Some of them started in FCW, but I would label them homegrown talents. I’m actually happy they don’t seem to lean toward pushing their homegrown talent over those with independent experience. I feared they would for political reasons, but that hasn’t been the case. If nothing else, I give them credit for keeping close tabs on the indies and rival promotions. It wasn’t that long ago that there was talk that they wouldn’t use a lot of TNA talent and obviously that either didn’t last long or it was never really an edict.
