Dexter Lumis was one of the highlights of NXT television for a long time, especially thanks to his amusing storyline with Indi Hartwell. Unfortunately, Lumis and nine other NXT stars were released by WWE earlier this year. Lumis also reunited with Indi Hartwell recently.

The former WWE Superstar had a series of memorable matches with the likes of Roderick Strong and Theory. He was featured in solid feuds as well during his time in NXT.

It was said that he was released because of his age. He now goes by the name Samuel Shaw and has been competing in the indie circuit. Shaw took to Twitter and uploaded photo of himself alongside Indi Hartwell, during a USA Pro Wrestling event in Orlando, Florida.

Shaw and Hartwell’s storyline became one of the best things about NXT television for a long time. This included their kayfabe wedding on an episode of NXT 2.0 long ago. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for Shaw.
