WWE released the following wrestlers from their NXT contracts on Friday.
-Referee Stephon Smith
-Desmond Troy (a/k/a Denzel Dejournette)
Powell’s POV: The releases were announced by the wrestlers, Fightful.com, and PWInsider.com. While I feel for everyone who was cut, I am most surprised to see Bronson Reed let go given that he recently dropped the NXT North American Championship in what many of assumed was a prelude to him being called up the main roster. There are some very talented people who were released and I sincerely hope that they find success elsewhere.
