New details have emerged following the announcement that NXT tag team duo Rip Fowler and Jagger Reid, also known as the Dyad, have been denied their requests for release from WWE.

Earlier this month, it was reported that the requests had been granted, but Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer quickly corrected this and said that it was “up in the air.” In a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer explained that the duo wanted to move back to England, but their request was denied by WWE.

Meltzer previously reported that in NXT, it was like they were gone, but then they were told they had to decide. The duo has been working in NXT since then, and according to their recent tweets, they have been denied their release request.

“When we talked about the story on April 3 right after WrestleMania when I first heard about it, it was pretty much, in NXT, it was like they were gone. They asked for their release, they were gonna get released, and then they were basically told, ‘We have to decide’.


“So they’ve been working there and I guess today, based on the tweet, they were told, ‘No, you’re not getting your release’.

“So they’re gonna be there until the end of the contract and that’s that, and then presumably they will leave unless they changed their minds.”

The Dyad are part of the Schism faction, which also includes Joe Gacy and Ava, both of whom the duo praised on social media in their tweets.

It is unclear whether Fowler and Reid will continue to appear on NXT TV until the end of their contracts, which are set to expire in mid-October. Fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for the tag team.
