NXT events rescheduled, Jimmy Jacobs, former NXT talent says Bill DeMott shouldn't have been fired
- The Roman Show recently spoke to former WWE developmental talent Jody Kristofferson, the son of actor Kris Kristofferson who wrestled in NXT as Garrett Dylan. Kristofferson talked about Bill Demott stepping down as head trainer, and felt that he should have stayed.
"I've been getting a lot of questions about this," Kristofferson said. "There are a lot of mixed feelings. He could be a hard ass. He was a hard trainer, but he was getting paid to be a hard trainer. It's like when you go to the military they are not training you to be your friend they are training you to go to war. Was Bill rough at times? Yeah. But I learned form Bill. There were times were we butted heads. But he made me a better wrestler."
"I don't believe he deserved to get fired or I know he didn't get fired he stepped down. He was good at what he did."
