Kevin Steen
Rumors have persisted over the last several months that Kevin Steen was set to sign a developmental contract with WWE. It looks to be official now, as the former ROH champion has posed for a picture with Triple H while wearing a WWE NXT shirt. The belief is that he will be focusing more on his weight and physique than actually training for the in ring stuff.

Bray Wyatt
During a recent interview, Triple H revealed some interesting things about Bray Wyatt. He stated that WWE was on the verge of giving him a release a while back. HHH said he was able to convince management to let him work on a new character and test it out on WWE NXT. Things worked out rather well, and Wyatt was eventually promoted to the main roster.
August 7, 2014
Eva Marie
In the previous generation, Sean Waltman was the benchmark when it comes to fans giving him heat because they legitimately resented the performer. It looks like Eva Marie is going to be taking that mantle now. During a recent appearance at a WWE NXT live event, the red haired diva was treated rather rudely by the audience. Things became even worse after she put on a very sub par performance as well.
July 19, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Triple H might be downplaying his arrival to the developmental program, but Kenta Kobayashi is far from a regular new performer joining WWE. Internally, he is being viewed as a major marketing asset as the company is hoping to expand its reaches in Japan. A television network has already agreed to air WWE NXT since Kobayashi will be featured on those shows. The Japanese star is also set to help promote the WWE Network when it expands overseas.

Tyson Kidd
Even though the mask has been designed and ordered, it looks like Tyson Kidd might not be doing that gimmick after all. Some were pushing for him to receive a new character and push on the main roster because of his long tenure with WWE. However, others are against the idea and want him to remain in WWE NXT to work with the developmental wrestlers.
June 12, 2014
Camacho
Since 2011, Camacho has worked just one match on Smackdown. During that time, he was not utilized in a match on Monday Night Raw at all. He recently was sent down to WWE NXT to work as a veteran presence on those shows. Today, though, saw the end of his tenure with the company. WWE has given Camacho his release. His tag team partner Hunico still remains on the roster.
June 12, 2014
Batista
While his character quit WWE on Monday Night Raw this week, Batista is still very much working with the company. The former world heavyweight champion will still be making an appearance at a WWE NXT event later on this month. Afterwards, he is expected to take off for a couple of months to do promote Guardians of the Galaxy and film another movie.
June 4, 2014
Adrian Neville
During the latest WWE NXT show, an interesting injury was revealed. Adrian Neville had four teeth knocked out of his mouth during a backstage segment with Brodus Clay, who has been down in developmental for several months now. Neville had dental surgery to repair the teeth and now wears a mouth guard during matches to prevent further damage.
May 31, 2014
Ashley Flair
In a sign that she should be called up to the main roster in the near future, Ashley Flair has been given the WWE NXT Women's Championship. She defeated Natalya Neidhart to capture the belt. Management has long praised her athletic ability, and with her father, Ric Flair, coming back to Monday Night Raw soon, WWE could be looking to capitalize on that relationship.
May 30, 2014
Adrian Neville
"I was shown a package of things he's done and I was wondering if I could keep up in the ring with him. Once he gets here he'll not only already be established, but Superstars like myself will already have ideas in our head about things we can do with him. And that will make it that much better." - Dolph Ziggler praising WWE NXT developmental star Adrian Neville
May 30, 2014
Tyson Kidd
"It's a fresh coat of paint, a whole new start and a way for the WWE Universe to see Tyson Kidd in a different light than they have for the first few years I've been on the main roster. I think they'll see a more complete package. I'm a constant work in progress, always working on every aspect to get better and better. You're always going to see a different Tyson Kidd. Not that I haven't been in the past, but I'm more motivated, focused and driven than ever before." - Tyson Kidd talking about his work with developmental wrestlers in WWE NXT
May 28, 2014
Triple H
For those wondering about the status of Tyson Kidd within WWE, his new role has become a bit more clear within the company. Management likes having him work as an in ring trainer in developmental. The high flyer has been utilized in WWE NXT rather frequently. Triple H recently stated that he trusts Kidd in this role. Kidd might still be utilized on the main roster here and there, however.
May 28, 2014
Triple H
During a conference call today, Triple H reminded everyone that there is a major difference between being on the main roster and being on the WWE NXT roster. The executive vice president stated that just because something works in developmental, it does not mean that it is guaranteed to work on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.

Alex Riley
"Thank you for the 'you still got it' chants. I'm not 50 years old, nor have I been out that long, but I do appreciate it." - Alex Riley discussing the reaction from WWE NXT fans during his recent return to the ring
May 26, 2014
Ashley Flair
One of the ideas that was being tossed around in WWE NXT was to have Natalya Neidhart and Ashley Flair working a high profile match against one another, where Bret Hart and Ric Flair would be in the respective corners of their relatives. However, WWE is unable to come to an agreement with Hart, so there are now rumors that Jim Neidhart could be contacted and utilized in the role.
May 26, 2014
Alex Riley
Last month, there were rumors that Alex Riley was contemplating a return to the ring, and it looks like that might be true. Over the weekend, he worked a live event match for WWE NXT, where Riley worked a triple threat main event match against Kalisto and Viktor. A lot of eyes will be on Riley to see if he wrestles more and gets another chance at the main roster.
May 17, 2014
Adam Rose
Things change pretty rapidly backstage in WWE, and that appears to be the case with the Adam Rose push. While he might still get his pay per view debut at Payback 2014 against Jack Swagger, there are those in management who feel that his television debut on Monday Night Raw was a flop. There are even rumors floating around that Rose could be sent back down to WWE NXT.
May 12, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
A peculiar scene took place at a WWE NXT live event this week. Yoshi Tatsu, who used to be an in ring performer on the main roster, worked as the announcer. While rumors have sprung up about a possible career change, the belief is that Tatsu is simply getting in some practice, as WWE plans on utilizing him on the upcoming tour of Japan.
May 10, 2014
Baron Corbin
In an interesting move, Jason Jordan and Baron Corbin are being brought in for Extreme Rules 2014 tonight. The two of them are also scheduled to be backstage at Monday Night Raw and Smackdown as well. There is a very good chance that the two WWE NXT performers will be used in some sort of role tonight, despite neither one of them being rumored for a main roster promotion.
May 4, 2014
Layla El
It looks like Layla El will not be the next WWE NXT Women's Champion, as the longtime diva has been eliminated from the tournament to crown a new titleholder. She lost to Natalya Neidhart this week. Rather than allowing Paige to hold both this belt and the WWE Divas Championship, management opted to strip her of the title and hold a tournament.
May 2, 2014
Colt Cabana
Got some bad news if you're a fan of the Colt Cabana podcast. The former WWE star revealed that his web server has been hacked by malicious bots. He is having trouble finding help to resolve the issue, which started a couple of days ago. Cabana recently landed a pretty big guest when legendary commentator Jim Ross agreed to do an interview for his show.

AJ Lee
Since he left the company, WWE fans have been eager to get a glimpse of CM Punk. His appearance on the Talking Dead created quite the buzz. So did a brief glimpse at the airport, where the former world champion was picking up his girlfriend, AJ Lee. Now, Punk has been spotted again, this time he is with Colt Cabana at an NHL game.
March 26, 2014
Jim Cornette
"Yeah, a lot of people tweeted it towards me. I think he is entitled to his opinion. You can't fault people for having an opinion. Luckily for me, I've never been put in a position to hire and fire people, and he was in that position and he can't hire everybody. I'm one of the people that Jim Cornette didn't want. Obviously the people that he didn't want aren't going to be happy about it. That's life. I could hold a grudge, but I don't. I understand that you have to hire and you have to fire and the ones that you fire aren't going to be happy. It's about going on and moving on. Luckily, I've done way bigger and better things since leaving Ring of Honor. Maybe it was a mistake by them for letting me go, and maybe it wasn't if they're happy with the direction that they've gone. I don't hold any grudge against Jim. I'm almost kind of thankful that I was able to go on to better places in my career." - Colt Cabana addresses the backstage heat he has with Jim Cornette

February 9, 2014
CM Punk
There are those that believe that the backstage heat situation with CM Punk right now will have a major effect on whether or not WWE brings Colt Cabana on board as an announcer. The two of them are really good friends, and the belief is that Punk was the reason why management gave Cabana a second chance at trying out for what was rumored to be a spot on the WWE Network.
February 8, 2014
CM Punk
According to Colt Cabana, the backstage heat incident between WWE and CM Punk is not a work, like speculated by wrestling fans who are hoping to see him coming back soon. Cabana mentioned that Punk has been upset with the company for quite some time now, and he's extremely displeased at the moment, so a quick return is unlikely.
February 7, 2014

CM Punk

Colt Cabana, a good friend of CM Punk in real life, was given another tryout not too long ago with WWE, but the company opted not to sign him to a contract just yet. It now appears that he is being considered for a possible role on the upcoming WWE Network.

Colt Cabana

Since it has been a couple of months now since his tryout to be a commentator, it does not appear that Colt Cabana will be picked up by WWE anytime soon. Some are even speculating that the courtesy was extended as a favor to CM Punk.

CM Punk

"CM Punk did the most memorable promo in the past 20 years of wrestling to 4 million people watching at home and I'm sure millions more who watched it online," Colt said. "If even 10 percent of the people who watched it scratched their heads and looked me, that's a whole lot of people. At the time he did that promo I had a lot of different projects going and things that I was very proud of including my podcast. I always say you can lead a horse to water but you can't make the horse drink s***** water. I like to think I had some great tasting water. Since that time a lot of people have come to check me out and stayed on for the ride. It's been great having those people as fans."

Colt Cabana

"I'm just riding the wave of fun right now. The WWE has been weirdly talking with me for over a year now. I can't rely on them though. I do my own thing until stuff gets concrete. Right now, I can't worry if I'll be doing announcing or anything else. I know I want to concentrate on continuing to wrestle around the world and growing my comedy stuff. All I can say about the future is that I'm going to be having fun with wrestling. That's a guarantee."
