...as according to PWInsider.

Oliver Grey was half of the tag team champions with Adrian Neville: they were the first champions before Oliver got injured. A shame, he was quite good.

Raquel Diaz, a/k/a Shaul Guerrero, was on NXT for about two weeks before leaving. She's back, and now she's gone again. She looks absolutely NOTHING like your usual NXT or WWE divas, which is unfortunate.

Mason Ryan...well, we all know Mason. After the New Nexus, he settled in NXT. He had a pretty good go at it there, with some fun feuds and matches.

Another name released is Danny Burch - I honestly don't really know who he is. Also, another diva named Shara was released. I don't think she was ever on TV. She's a champion arm wrestler.

I'm mostly disappointed with Oliver Grey being released. I think a heel Grey vs. Neville could have been pretty fun. Shaul leaving...? I quite liked her first stint on the program. I bet she'll be back (again) one day. I hope so.

Shaul's status may be mirroring Vickie's...she's sorta kinda done (for now) (I think?)

as CRZ said, the ups and downs of Shaul's time with the company point to this being more than just the standard cost-cutting thing. She was beign repackaged as Baron Corbin's biker valet, so this may have more to do with her wanting out at the same time as her mom.

It's funny that they'd cut guys so close to the Network launch, when there's suddenly a wider audience for them to try to get over with. I wonder if this means they've got some new people to bring on to NXT?

Funny enough, he's the only name on the list I've seen, when he wrestled Adam Rose about 2 weeks ago on NXT.

They've got more tryout camps this month, KENTA and Prince Devitt are rumoured to have signed, and Kevin Steen and Roderick Strong apparently impressed them a lot at the last tryout. That's not even counting people like Sami Callahan and Samurai del Sol who are yet to properly debut on NXT TV.

Drake Younger has signed as well.

He's being brought in as a referee, apparently.

Disappointed to see Sarah Backman released. The divas division could use someone with the body type to be a real monster heel, and she definitely could have been that. Oh well.

There are plenty of famous people who may or will debut soon, but it's important to remember there are a ton of people around that training facility. Around 15 people seem to be TV regulars, but they have something between 60 and 80 people assigned to NXT. They would like to get it to 100, and there's going to be no end to the periodic tryout camps . The one thing you can be sure with NXT going forward is there's always going to be many new people waiting to be brought out, even when they aren't signing new names.

And that's apparently why they'll also have these sorts of releases. They've got to keep turning over the roster to see what they have in other people. Even if someone's a TV regular, if someone's around long enough and WWE hasn't found a role for them, they have to cut them loose to give someone else a chance - especially since they can probably hire back a Mason Ryan or Oliver Gray if they develop further elsewhere.

DANG

Here I was pretty self-satisfied just for landing on "Free Mason."

More like "Freed Mason".

If they give me KENTA, I will pretty much forget every release that's ever upset me ever.

Even though he'll probably get the Taijiri, Tatsu, or heaven forbid, the Chris Hero treatment I've been hooked on watching that guy since Hawaii's KIKU (local network dedicated to Japanese/Japanese-Americans) was playing old NOAH shows every week.

Also I hear his finishing move may now be available.

Who came up with the lighted jacket first? Y2J or Prince Devitt.
