Two more out the door. One of the most interesting things about WWE is when they sign someone new. You’ll often see a big name debuting for NXT at one of their Takeover shows and it’s always going to create an uproar. However, there’s also the other side of the spectrum, with a pair of releases. That’s the case today.

Here’s one of the releases in action.

According to, both Sage Beckett and Abbey Laith have been released from their NXT contracts. Both appeared in last year’s Mae Young Classic and have been sparingly used on “NXT” TV since. Laith wrestled on the independent circuit as Kimber Lee and Beckett formerly appeared in Impact Wrestling as Rosie Lottalove before losing over 100lbs.

Opinion: Really, this isn’t the biggest surprise. Since the Mae Young Classic, both have barely appeared on “NXT” and it’s not like they were stars. It was nice to have them around for awhile but really, they wasn’t anything important. Now that being said, I have no idea why they weren’t pushed as they certainly deserved the chance, at least due to what they’re capable of doing.

And the other one.
