WWE News: WWE continues firing talents. In the latest WWE news, as many as a dozen WWE NXT superstars have been shown the exit door midway during tonight’s WWE Smackdown, and the reason is yet to be known. The news came as a complete shocker, and the live audience in attendance on tonight’s Blue brand show was not at all cheering but sitting with pin-drop silence most of the time.

WWE News: The reason for all these sudden releases is yet to be known. However, according to a report generated by PWInsider, WWE has plans to repackage WWE NXT with a new Logo, new Lightings, and a different format. Further, the report stated that WWE wants NXT to be more focused on polishing young talent going forward. Tonight’s release was a major step towards this process.

Some of the superstars have already reacted on their official Twitter after their release, including the former NXT North American Champion Bronson Reed- who was rumored to get a main roster run. Below is what he tweeted, 

“Just got released from @WWE 

This monster is back on the loose … you don’t know WHAT you’ve just done.”
