As noted, WWE released former Tough Enough competitor Zamariah “ZZ” Loupe from his WWE NXT deal today.
Both Woods and Kingdon had been working at least some live events but never had any significant roles on TV. Woods has debuted on TV but mostly as an enhancement talent. Woods was a former national wrestling champion and amateur MMA fighter while Kingdon was a former champion bodybuilder.
Woods commented on Twitter:
@alexdelbarrio thank you man. Just a set back. I have no regrets and I know I did my absolute best!
