WWE has altered its approach to recruiting new talent for NXT 2.0. The company has been heavily recruiting collegiate athletes and others from outside the world of wrestling. Those new trainees have six months to show improvement, or else they risk being cut.

The latest round of releases could be coming shortly. As many NXT stars have become significantly better performers since their debut, others have not cut the mustard. Many familiar names could be on the chopping block.

On the latest Bryan & Vinny & Craig Show, Bryan Alvarez ranted about the peculiar approach to talent evaluation in WWE. Alvarez noted that WWE recently completed their regular six-month evals. There could be some familiar names about to be let go.

“You know what I heard today? I don’t have all of the details, but with NXT 2.0 they got the new deal where you got six months to get better in this sh*tty program here. Who in the world could possibly get better in six months working no shows and just doing horrible stuff on television?

But every six months, they evaluate you, and if you aren’t getting better then [you’re] done for and apparently they’ve made some evaluations including some names you would know. So we might get some changes coming to NXT 2.0….not a cancellation, some people might be canceled.”

Time will tell who will fall victim to the next round of cuts in NXT. WWE is always adding new names to the roster, so there are plenty of talents who are likely expendable. These are likely nervous times for the WWE wrestlers in Orlando.
