• More On NXT Wrestler Refusing To Work A Match & Walking Out, Vince McMahon Becoming Exceptionally Private
Fightful recently reported that NXT wrestler Taynara Conti walked out on WWE.
In an update to this, Fightful is reporting that Conti refused to work a Battle Royal in NXT in January:
“Conti had refused to work a battle royal on NXT TV in the middle of January and would subsequently leave. She was still in Florida at the very least towards the end of the month, taking in some jiu jitsu training at a local gym.”
Fightful also gave an update on Vince McMahon’s behaviour backstage in WWE as of late:
“Over on RAW, it was noted that Vince McMahon was around ‘approximately half the time’. Outside of that, McMahon is said to have been exceptionally private of late.
This is still a far cry from decades past when McMahon would almost never miss an episode of WWE RAW if he could help it.”
