In an interview with WrestleTalk, former Imperium and SAnitY member Alexander Wolfe (Axel Tischer) spoke about his time in the company, and how there are NXT stars that do not wish to get the main roster call up.
“I know a lot of guys, they do not want to get (called) up. They’ve openly said they wanna stay (in NXT). They had the chance to go up and they refused to do it even if the money’s more. Which I really respect, and after I came back to NXT and NXT UK, for me it was also like I never wanted to go back up.
“It does not have anything to do with yourself, your abilities, or even the main roster itself. You get lost in the shuffle because of reasons. And in the end, it’s not really anybody’s fault because you cannot put everybody on the telly.”
Alexander Wolfe was listed with the group of NXT talent released from WWE back in May, but recently revealed that his WWE contract actually expired on June 15.
