NXT Coach Scotty 2 Hotty Announces WWE Departure

NXT coach Scott Taylor, better known by his ring name Scotty 2 Hotty, has announced that he is leaving WWE.

Taylor wrote that he has requested his release from the company and that he’s chosen to walk away since he got to the point of working “solely for the paycheck”, which he didn’t want to do.

He had been a coach and backstage producer for NXT since September 2016.

Taking to Facebook, he wrote:

Today, I have asked for my release from World Wrestling Entertainment. 30 years ago I stepped into a WWE ring for the very first time. I have lived my dream 100 times over. Some of my most special memories will always be from the last five years working with NXT. The black and gold brand was something special and I am proud to have been a small part of that. I always promised myself that I would never be part of something solely for the paycheck and that was where I was at. I told myself that I would walk away if I ever got to that point, so that is what I have chosen to do.

Coaching and producing the stars of NXT will always be a highlight of my life. I love you all more than you will ever know.

We wish Taylor all the best for the future.
