Bronson Reed Says He Was Very Shocked At First Over His WWE NXT Release

Jonah ROCK, formerly known as Bronson Reed, was released from WWE NXT back on August 6th of this year as part of the latest round of talent releases prior to the NXT 2.0 rebrand.

He recently was a guest on Chris Van Vliet’s INSIGHT podcast where he talked about his release from WWE NXT last month. Jonah said that it was very shocking at first, and that he would be lying if he said he wasn’t upset and angry over the news of his release.

“Well, it was very shocking at first. I would be lying if I would say I wasn’t upset and angry, and all the emotions that come with something like this. It’s like the seven stages of grief. Even though I didn’t physically lose anyone, it was kind of like Bronson Reed had died. I’d spent the last few years investing in myself and becoming that character of Bronson Reed. But now that’s over and I have to look for something new. I’m bringing back a little bit of what I did before WWE and becoming Jonah again, but it was hard. I’ve been able to deal with it pretty well though. I’ve had hardships in life and in the professional wrestling business before, and that has sort of prepared me for this day if it was to come. I just didn’t think it would be any time soon.”

Chris also asked Jonah ROCK if he has been in talks with any other promotions since his WWE release, to which he stated that he has been in talks with the major promotions that you would expect him to be in talks with.

“Yes. I’m in talks with the major promotions that you would expect me to be in talks with. Nothing is set in stone yet, but there will be soon.”
