Bronson Reed 'In Talks' For Wrestling Return, Says WWE Is Not The Pinnacle Anymore
Reed was released by WWE in August
The former Bronson Reed has revealed he is 'in talks' about a return to wrestling.
Reed was shockingly let go by WWE at the start of August despite rumours that the former NXT North American Champion was set for an imminent call-up to the WWE main roster. The 33-year-old had been working dark matches and bouts on Main Event.
With his non-compete reportedly set at 30 days, Reed is now available to sign with another promotion, and says he is in conversations about a move.
Speaking on the JONAHDROME Show, he said: "I am in talks with people. I cannot tell you what, but I will be wrestling again. You will see me again."
Reed's release from WWE with a handful of NXT departures and the news that NXT would be undergoing a revamp.
Speaking about the changes, Reed said, "I'm not the biggest fan of the direction that I have heard they are going in, with not actively seeking Independent wrestlers, only because I am a journeyman wrestler. I have nothing against the great athletes there that they have signed and will sign. It's nothing that they've done. It's the business itself.
"Someone like me that has loved (wrestling) his whole life, of course, I want to end up at the pinnacle of the sport. For a long time, everyone has thought that WWE is the be all, end all, but I don't think it is anymore. More and more talent are realizing that there are other places to go. Other places where my talent will be more utilized."
