WWE has a lot of ideas floating around, but not all of them can see the light of day on television. SAnitY was a great stable in NXT, but they didn’t amount to much on the WWE main roster. The stable was missing Nikki Cross when Vince McMahon called them up as well. The stable almost got a second shot, but that was nixed.
While speaking to Ringsiders Wrestling, Alexander Wolfe revealed that WWE did come close to bringing back that insane stable, but that just didn’t pan out in the end.
“But going back to the plan, actually the plan before the pandemic hit was to bring SAnitY back together. But then the pandemic hit and then EY (Eric Young) got released, and what I know is that not even Triple H knew about EY. The only thing and EY, he said it in an interview, he (Triple H) was one of the first guys to give him the call and, ‘Sorry man, I didn’t know about that’, and I don’t know this, just (guessing), they probably tried to rehire him but, as I can relate right now, there’s no animosity, there’s no hatred but it’s a sour pill to swallow that they kind of like deny you and you kind of think, ‘Okay guys, you don’t want to have me? F you’. We’re all humans, we all feel.
“That was the plan to bring SAnitY back just to have all three of us together and then we would feud with the three guys of Imperium but then they have to figure out what can we do, blah, blah, blah and I thought because of this and even with EY being gone from the company that they wanna do something with Killian (Dain) and me and maybe with Drake (Maverick) together then or maybe with somebody else.
“We form kind of like a SAnitY 2.0 where a lot of people would say, ‘Where’s EY? Where’s EY?’ Because you know, they have to complain. But in the end, it (didn’t) happen that way. In the end, they did budget cuts and then as I got told, I was on the list for that so they will not fire me but because my contract is up on June 15, they will not renew me at that point.”
Alexander Wolfe’s NXT contract was running up anyway, and the company released him prior to that happening. It is still sad that they couldn’t do something with the SAnitY stable. They had a ton of momentum on the black and gold brand, but things just didn’t translate once Vince McMahon got ahold of the idea.
Do you think SAnitY should have received another shot in WWE? Sound off in the comments!
