What's happening...

Latest NXT talent cuts include Dexter Lumis, Dakota Kai, Persia Pirotta, Malcolm Bivens, and Harland

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

NXT made the following talent cuts on Friday, April 29.

-Dexter Lumis

-Dakota Kai

-Malcolm Bivens

-Persia Pirotta

-Draco Anthony

-Harland (a/k/a Parker Boudreaux)

-Vish Kanya

-Paige Prinzivalli

-Mila Malani

-Raelyn Divine

Powell’s POV: The cuts were announced via Fightful.com. Harland recently disappeared from the Joe Gacy act. Bivens was the mouthpiece for the Diamond Mine faction and his character seemed to be showing frustration with Roderick Strong’s leadership. Kai is a talented wrestler who makes her opponents look great in the ring, but it seemed fairly obvious that she was not going to be called up to the main roster. The Dexter Lumis act had mostly run its course. Regardless of how people felt about the character, Sam Shaw did a really good job of playing the part. The cut that surprises me the most is Pirotta, who had been getting a good amount of television time in the couples drama involving her, Duke Hudson, Indi Hartwell, and Lumis.

    Pirotta is the only loss in that bunch. Thankfully we won’t have to watch the completely untalented Kai anymore.

  2. On the contrary, the Dakota cut is as disappointing as the Persia cut. It’s insulting to call her “untalented”. She is one of the best wrestlers New Zealand has produced. She was held back at times if anything.

  3. Really surprised by the Pirotta release. She seemed better skilled and flexible than Hartwell. Between all of the name changes and talent releases, I think it’s time for Triple H to distract Vince with something shiny while Stephanie grabs the keys to the Kingdom.

  4. Jason, I think it’s time for you to start a WWE Deadpool. People give you a list of 10 superstar’s names they think will be released in the near future. My picks are as follows:

    Indie Hartwell
    Alex Bliss
    Nikki Cross
    Trick Williams
    Guru Raj
    Zoey Stark
    Wes Lee
    Ickemen Jiro

    Let the game begin!
