Released NXT Star Expected Main Roster Call-Up WWE

Former WWE NXT star Bodhi Hayward (Brady Booker) has admitted that he expected a main roster call-up prior to his release.

Hayward was one of five names reportedly let go by WWE on November 1. Speaking with PWMania, the former Chase U member noted that his release came as a complete shock to him, as he thought Chase U were preparing for the main roster.

Hayward said:

“My first initial thought was, I was in shock. It was 100% out of the left field. I was upset too. I felt the relationships I had there that were being built were good. I was shocked, and it was a big blow to my confidence.

“I was thinking Chase U main roster, but I was shocked and hurt. It showed me that there is a lot more to this business that maybe I do have to learn about. In some way shape or form, you are always in control. I look at this as a great opportunity.

“I feel that I’m made for this. Physically, and mentally. The one thing I always wanted was to cut an in-ring promo. I love being in front of crowds. I never feel more comfortable than being in front of them. That’s what will make me successful in this business. I love the Brodies and they’re loving me back. I want to love everyone for who they are as well.”

One of the other names released, Sloane Jacobs, has also taken to social media to break her silence.
