Just a few days ago, Dave Meltzer had reported that WWE was planning to bring NXT back on tour, because as you know it usually takes place in one place, but in a restricted territory to move. “[…] I can't imagine they can do a national tour with this crew.
I think they're just Florida shows, but that's what I was talking about earlier. It's like, just do a couple of shows in Florida, give these people some time in the ring, let them learn how to wrestle in a non-TV format, and stuff like that.
[...]" On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer discussed the letting go of Carter, who at the time of his release was one-half of the NXT Tag Team Champions. Alvarez stated that he found the whole situation surprising as there were rumblings about all this a week ago, and WWE still chose to put the tag titles on MSK at Stand & Deliver.
"Also, came out today that Nash Carter who is one-half of the NXT Tag Team Champions has been fired," Bryan Alvarez said. "Obviously there were lot of allegations of abuse and there was a picture that surfaced of him dressed as Hitler and I think the most amazing thing about it to me is that there were rumblings about this well over a week ago, to the point where he did a job on NXT last week."
