Mark Henry comments on WWE releasing 13 NXT stars
During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry talked about the 13 WWE NXT stars that were released from WWE…
“I just saw somebody say, ‘NXT has just been released by the WWE.’ I giggled a little bit. It wasn’t a laugh, it was a [giggles]. That shouldn’t be a thing, man. I shouldn’t giggle at that, but the point about it is there have been so many releases that people are starting to look at, ‘Damn, man, the writings on the wall. I can be out of here at any time. Maybe I need to focus on job security. Maybe I need to go ahead and take a preemptive strike and not re-sign and go somewhere else.’ Japan, IMPACT, AEW, ROH, MLW. There are places to go work, and do you want to be a part of something that’s already well established or do you want to go somewhere and help make a company better? It depends on the talent, but it looks like, from an NXT standpoint, that nobody’s safe. That’s what it looks like to me after last night — Getting that news, and man, I’m just sitting here like still perplexed about the fact [that] it happened during the show. Like, hey guys, ‘I’m going to throw this grenade in the room and see what happens.’ What did they think was going to be the reaction from the fans?” (quote courtesy of Fightful.com)
