Thus far, there has been very little negative things being said about Matt Bloom since he has taken over at the head trainer in NXT. While some of that might be because a lot of people disliked Bill DeMott and his ways, the main reason is that Bloom is simply doing a good job. Word coming out of the company is that he is firm but fair with the developmental wrestlers. He also has a good degree of knowing about working in the ring.

In case you have not noticed, accusations against Bill DeMott have not been as vocal as they previously were. Joey Ryan hinted on social media that the WWE legal department might have had something to do with that. He was one of the more vocal of the people who believe that management should have fired DeMott for his inappropriate behavior towards the developmental wrestlers. Ryan has a well known hatred of DeMott.

WWE was not as oblivious to the accusations thrown at Bill DeMott as many fans assume them to be. There are cameras installed throughout the performance center, and the company does keep footage of all the practices. The move was done a couple of years back because the front office wanted to protect themselves from potential lawsuits from disgruntled developmental wrestlers who ended up not making it to the main roster.

While Bill DeMott is no longer with the company after tendering his resignation earlier this month, the former trainer is expected to be sitting in a room with WWE representatives again very soon. The belief in the industry is that there will be lawsuits heading towards the desk of Vince McMahon very soon. Some of the developmental wrestlers that made allegations are expected to now take things to court. Settlements are expected.

Yet another former developmental wrestler has spoken out about Bill DeMott. Trenesha Biggers posted an email filled with allegation that she sent out years ago. In it, she states that DeMott never really gave her a fair shake and even went out of his way to make her feel like she was not a welcomed member of the WWE training program. The woman formerly known as Rhaka Khan in TNA stated that her career was hurt by the experience.

An independent wrestler named Hannibal has provided the most bizarre Bill DeMott story yet. He claims that the head trainer once had Luke Gallows strip completely naked in the ring. DeMott then allegedly held jelly donuts in the faces of Zack Ryder and Melissa Coates while they took the stink face move from Gallows. It is being said that the talent agreed to do this because it would have enabled them to skip a regular training day.

Since Matt Bloom is taking over for Bill DeMott as the head trainer for WWE, some are wondering whether or not he will continue as the commentator for NXT. The announce table was already thinned out a bit earlier this week when Alex Riley decided to become an in ring performer again and work a program with heavyweight champion Kevin Owens. It would be difficult for Bloom to consult and coach the wrestlers backstage if he is commentating.
