Here are a few news items regarding last week’s WWE NXT releases via Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com…
* Malcolm Bivens had reportedly been considered for the role of Omos’ manager at one point until WWE decided to go with MVP.
* News of Dakota Kai’s release was said to have gotten a lot of “private negative feedback” from women within WWE as she was “very well respected” as a worker. Prior to her being cut, Kai was said to have been offered a new contract but she made a decision to not sign it as she didn’t see a future with the company.
* With Samuel Shaw (Dexter Lumis) being 38 years old, the belief is that age was a factor in WWE’s decision to cut him. The company has been focused on pushing younger athletes in recent months.
