WWE recently underwent another mass purge of NXT talent. The NXT releases are presently underway and we now have a list of talents who are no longer with WWE.

PW Insider recently provided the list of talents who are no longer with WWE. Bodhi Hayward stood out in those vignettes with his facial reactions. He was most recently seen in Andre Chase University. He was reportedly cut from TV because of the plot that Duke Hudson had killed him.

Sloane Jacobs, a 19-year-old talent from Pennsylvania who had previously performed in the independent circuit under the moniker The Notorious Mimi, joined NXT in March 2022. The Monster Factory trainee participated in Level Up and the Women’s Breakout competition on NXT earlier this year. Over the weekend, she worked the NXT live events.

Erica Yan Yan, who is originally from Shanghai, China, earned a contract last year and debuted on NXT TV in late 2021. She didn’t compete for the company again until September 2022. Texas-born star Damaris Griffin appeared on NXT Level Up multiple times. He hadn’t even been wrestling for the company for a year.
