Latest WWE Releases Part Of NXT's Rebranding

According to Fightful select, WWE has released 13 NXT Superstars from their contracts. Including: Bronson Reed, Bobby Fish, Mercedes Martinez, Leon Ruff, Asher Hale, Ari Sterling, Jake Atlas, Kona Reeves, Tyler Rust, Zechariah Smith, Giant Zanjeer, Desmond Troy and referee Stephon Smith.

Some of these talents were surprising since they have been featured on Live television. However, NXT contracts have a 30-day non-compete clause associated with their releases. It is very likely that fans will see them again in a month.

PWInsider noted that,

WWE is doing major changes to the NXT brand. Those changes would include a new logo, new lighting, and a focus on younger talent along with a different format to the show.

Wrestling News.co also reported that,

Officials in the company realize that the NXT brand has gotten stale and the look and feel of the show needed to change.

We will have to see what’s next for the NXT brand.
