WWE has a lot of things in the pipeline with NXT 2.0. Joe Gacy was last seen in the Breakout Tournament prior to this week’s episode, but his new gimmick was a huge departure from his previous incarnation.

Gacy debuted a new “woke” gimmick as a conflict resolution specialist. This new gimmick was met with mixed reviews from fans. It seems that WWE might want to hide it as well.

The company removed YouTube videos and social media posts that referenced Joe Gacy’s new character. This is not the best sign for him, but it is also unknown why WWE took those posts down. It appears that WWE.com’s photos from NXT 2.0 this week are he only sign of that new gimmick on their official website.

Gacy, who many said looks like Kevin Owens, cut a promo about being a conflict resolution specialist this week. He then proceeded to drop several hot-button words that a woke person would gravitate toward.

After Joe Gacy lost his match, he even wanted to seal the deal with a hug to prove that there were no hard feelings.

We’re not sure when Joe Gacy will be back on NXT 2.0, but he might have a tweaked gimmick the next time fans see him in the ring.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
