NXT Superstar Lars Sullivan was set to be called up to the main roster alongside Heavy Machinery, EC3, Lacey Evans, and Nikki Cross weeks ago, but he still has yet to appear on TV. Sullivan was going to make his debut and even begin a feud that would take him into a match against John Cena at WrestleMania 35. On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez said that this match is officially off the table now. The main reason for this is because WWE has chosen to give Sullivan as much time as he needs to return and they are unsure when he will be ready to come back. It had been reported in the past that Sullivan received anxiety attacks in the weeks leading up to his onscreen main roster debut. Cena is now rumored to be challenging Samoa Joe for the United States Championship at the event this year.
Since leaving WWE years ago, Simon Gotch has had plenty of unflattering words to say about fellow former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore. The two are rumored to have been rivals as far back as their NXT days. During an interview on Title Match Wrestling Network, Amore took the time respond to Gotch’s statements. Amore also said that their feud seems to have stemmed from a moment when he supposedly outperformed Gotch in promo class during their time training in the WWE Performance Center. Gotch has reportedly not wanted to be friendly with Amore ever since. The former Cruiserweight Champion said that he has no hate for Gotch unless he intentionally tried to knock him out during their tag team match at WWE’s Payback pay-per-view in 2016.
WWE announced a whole new class of recruits who will be coming over to their new Performance Center in the United Kingdom. The new signees will become regularly featured on NXT UK soon, and one of the new roster members is now set to make her official onscreen debut for the show. WWE has announced that Kay Lee Ray will be making her in-ring debut during the next episode of NXT UK. Ray is currently the Insane Championship Wrestling Women’s Champion, and she defeated NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm during ICW’s recent SquareGo event to retain her title. A rematch between both women could take place on NXT UK soon. Either way, get ready to see Ray become part of the NXT UK women’s division very soon.
