WWE Release: Is Vince McMahon planning to release several WWE NXT superstars? Check here
“The story that Vince and Bruce would be executive producers I was told is not the case, but then again, I don’t even know who knows what right now because everything is in transition. Most of the people in NXT don’t know anything, but I was told that the big picture stuff they are taking over. The new logo [is] from what I had heard, Kevin Dunn, but it’s from that side. The major stuff it’s gonna be them but they’re not gonna be producing every segment of the show, I don’t think. That may be wrong.”
Meltzer further confirmed that Triple H has no longer the same power or emphasis on NXT, and his father-in-law & WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is taking over things. He stated, “Definitely, Paul Levesque (Triple H) certainly has last power, there is no doubt about that and [McMahon and Prichard are] going to be in charge of the big picture stuff.”

Bryan Alvarez of WON had something interesting to reveal. He reported that several NXT Superstars are on the verge of facing the axe, as they do not fit the suit in the revamped show, especially the veteran talent. He further said that no one is sure what Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard are planning to come up with.
Alvarez stated, “I’ve heard names on the chopping block, and you don’t know until it happens, but I have definitely heard names. A lot of the guys who have been there for a long time, those are the names that have been talked about.”
WWE Release: We will have to wait and see how this next wave of WWE releases will impact the development and growth of the revamped WWE NXT.
