Report: Reason Several WWE NXT Talents Are Off TV Revealed

Some NXT stars are off TV for various reasons

A new report has detailed the reason why several NXT stars have been missing from television of late. 

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that some stars who moved from NXT UK to NXT (ahead of the mooted launch of NXT Europe next year) were absent due to a mixture of injuries and visa issues, saying: 

"Yeah, they're either injured, which actually is a codeword for getting their visas worked on in some cases, and suspended, which is also a codeword for getting their visas worked on. And guys actually injured".

On this week's episode of NXT, Javier Bernal called out Gallus, who are 'suspended' in storyline. Ilja Dragunov was also written off television with an injury angle. 

Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) last wrestled on the September 14 episode of NXT, where they lost a Pub Rules match to Brooks Jensen and Josh Briggs. They were suspended along with faction-mate Joe Coffey following the match. 

Arianna Grace, Tiffany Stratton, Yulisa Leon and Tony D'Angelo are all currently sidelined with injuries.
