WWE released several Superstars and members of staff since April 2020. Since then fans had been dreading the possibility of more releases in the company. This includes Tyler Breeze, who was released from the company back in June of 2021. Now it appears Breeze explained why the black and gold NXT was so successful.

There was a time when Xavier Woods was told to stay away from Tyler Breeze. Tyler Breeze previously admitted that he was always prepared to be released from the company since the day Breeze was hired.

While speaking with Agents of Wrestling, Tyler Breeze talked about his time during the original Black and Gold NXT days. Breeze then stated that the brand was successful due to a perfect mix of talent.

“It’s very cool. Very, very cool. I think it was like a genuine underground feeling to where people were. I don’t know I don’t want to say they’re looking for the alternative or something like that. I think they just…we were new.


I think at that time, it was a perfect mix of all these people who you would see them kind of blossom into FTR, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley, Becky, like, all these people that obviously they went on and have had hell of careers.

“From the main event to the start, to the tag division, to the women’s division to everything and all of them were an opener or main event or wherever you need them, but they were all acts that the fans cared about.

It just kind of took off with such a good group of people that it was awesome to be part of man, the atmosphere was just so cool and very hard to replicate I think.“

Tyler Breeze also won a championship last month after returning to the squared circle. We’ll have to wait and see whether he will ever return to WWE somewhere down the line.
