WWE have released Nick Dinsmore, better known as ‘Eugene’. Dinsmore was considered a good trainer and the NXT talents are quite upset with his release as he was well liked by everyone. Conspiracy theories going around say that Dinsmore may have ended up on the wrong side of someone politically.
WWE have released Matt Martlaro, according to reports from PWInsider. Martlaro worked behind the scenes at NXT and as the liaison from developmental to the WWE offices. In the past, Martlaro had worked as an on-air personality for Florida Championship Wrestling.
Martlaro was considered a hard worker and was thought of as a “Triple H Guy” among the other wrestlers, so his release surprised everyone. There’s not a lot of sympathy for Martlaro due to his “abrasive” character and although he was a good employee, he did not treat talents well.
