WWE Releases William Regal And More From Triple H's NXT Era; Unhappiness About Bron Breakker's Entrance

WWE Releases William Regal And More From Triple H's NXT Era; Unhappiness About Bron Breakker's Entrance

WWE has made another series of releases, this time removing those Triple H hired to help him run NXT before the brand lost the Wednesday Night War. There's also bad feeling backstage after Wednesday's 2.0.

Despite the fact Triple H managed to transform NXT into one of the hottest brands in the entire wrestling business, there are those within WWE who have written it off as a failure since the show lost the Wednesday Night War to AEW Dynamite. There's no denying that interest waned in the Wednesday night show after it moved to the USA Network and became a two-hour broadcast, but it's produced some of WWE's best and brightest Superstars. 

We've seen a lot of NXT Superstars crash and burn on the main roster, though that can be blamed on Vince McMahon attempting to remake the likes of Tyler Breeze and Karrion Kross in his own image. Now, NXT 2.0 has become a vehicle to create the wrestlers he wants on RAW and SmackDown.

Further emphasising WWE's attempts to move on from Triple H's time in charge of NXT is the fact a number of names have been released from the brand closely tied to his tenure there. 

William Regal, Scott Armstrong, and Road Dogg have all been fired (the mind boggles that Regal would be released), as have George Carroll, Cathy Corino (Allison Danger) and on air talent Timothy Thatcher, Hideki Suzuki from the Diamond Mine stable, and Danny Burch.

Fightful is also reporting that these cuts were indeed done to remove Triple H's hires, while Bron Breakker's NXT 2.0 entrance on Tuesday (which saw him kick through the old "X" from the classic NXT logo) has not been well-received backstage with the feeling being WWE was "sending a message."

NXT is dead...long live NXT 2.0?
