Dexter Lumis was one of the Superstars that Triple H brought back to television after he took over as Chief Content Officer. He had a little angle with The Miz, but Lumis hasn’t been seen in a while. There is a reason for that.
Dexter Lumis was really last seen in NXT as he swept Indi Hartwell off her feet once again. After carrying her off into the sunset, many fans thought that they would see them on the main roster next, but things didn’t pan out for them like that yet.
Indi Hartwell is currently out of action with an injury. That stopped her run as NXT Women’s Champion cold as well. It appears that this might have affected Dexter Lumis’ booking as well, because WWE doesn’t have anything for him now.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that Dexter Lumis is not injured, nor has he been released. Lumis is still getting a WWE paycheck, but there are just no creative plans for him at this time.
For those asking about Dexter Lumis in light of Johnny Gargano’s absence. We’re told he’s fine and is waiting on creative.
Dexter Lumis is a very interesting character for a family-friendly company like WWE. As a serial killer, he can drop many dark jokes throughout his segments, and they haven’t been shy about the axe humor either. Only time will tell what’s next for him, but he might have to wait a bit before that time comes when WWE has a plan for him.
Johnny Gargano is still not around either, but he’s cleared for a return. At this time, we are still waiting for that reunion for The Way on the WWE main roster.
