More On The Release Of Bodhi Hayward – As noted earlier, WWE released five NXT wrestlers including Bodhi Hayward. Hayward’s release comes as somewhat of a surprise because he was involved in a storyline with Chase University.
Per Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Live, there is apparently more to the story behind Hayward’s release
“All I will say, because I don’t know all of the details, but there was stuff going on,” Alvarez said. “I guess the easiest way to describe it is apparently Bodhi was a handful. So it wasn’t just ‘well, let’s get rid of this guy’ or whatever. But I did hear from multiple people that it wasn’t just ‘we’re gonna cut some folks, we’re gonna cut this person who was right in the middle of a storyline.’ There was more to Bodhi’s story. That’s really all I can say because I don’t know what the more is. But you know, you got a bunch of guys and whatever and they’re in Florida and there’s a loop and god only knows what can happen.”
Alvarez said that he presumed that the other releases were because they were not improving. He also stated that yesterday he heard that there were six releases so it’s possible that one name has not gotten out yet.
