As previously stated last week, NXT has been making an unusual amount of releases this year, of talent and crew alike. This has taken everyone by surprise, especially NXT on-screen general manager William Regal.
In an interview with Fightful, recently released talent Alex Zayne stated that Regal was in just as much shock as anyone when [Zayne] called him to speak post release. Regal stated he was not informed about the incoming cuts to the roster and Zayne believes this to be a genuine reaction. Word of the releases began to spread approximately a half hour post release, therefore Regal would not have had enough time to be notified by anyone of the cuts.
Zayne, like most release NXT talent, is under a 30 day non-compete clause. However, he was in attendance at this weekends IMPACT Wrestling tapings in Nashville, which appears to be indicating a debut with the company coming up very soon.
As always, we will keep you updated as more news develops.
