Back in June of last year, WWE held yet another round of cuts from the company and it included several big names. Among them include the likes of Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy. Unfortunately, WWE released several Superstars again a couple of weeks ago. This included the likes of Nia Jax, Karrion Kross, Keith Lee, Mia Yim and more.

That was not all as WWE has released even more talents after that as well. This included the likes of John Morrison, Drake Maverick, Tegan Nox. Nox already reacted to her release as she changed her name to Nixon Newell.

While speaking to Into The Danger Zone, Tegan Nox talked about her WWE release. Nox admitted she felt she wasn’t wanted in WWE and simply didn’t fit there at all.

“It’s a lot of different things. Everyone is walking on eggshells. With all the releases happening, you kind of feel, ‘it could be me next.’ I just had this feeling where I wasn’t…not welcome, but as such wanted; I don’t fit the demographic that they’re looking for. I’m a five-foot six blonde-brunette girl, covered in tattoos.”


Nox has a history of injuries, but she was also doing fine on the main roster. It remains to be seen what is next in store for her now that she is released from WWE.
