• Reason For Bronson Reed’s Release Revealed
Out of all the recent NXT releases, Bronson Reed’s release came as a huge surprise to pretty much everyone, considering that the talented powerhouse wrestler had some dark matches before main roster TV shows a few weeks ago.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon wasn’t impressed with Reed during those dark matches and made the decision to release him:
“Those internally said that when Reed got his tryout matches in recent weeks, that McMahon decided against him, and felt due that if he’s not going to be on the main roster, what is the point of keeping him.”
Bronson Reed is a former NXT North American Champion.
