Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet has now confirmed the report, saying that Ervin Jr. has indeed requested his release, but is planning to spend extra time thinking over his decision.
It is also worth noting that Ervin has removed any and all mention of WWE and NXT from his social media accounts.
According to the reliable Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens, NXT’s Stacey Ervin Jr. has quit WWE after what is said to be a concussion scare.
Casey tweeted that Ervin was given time to think over his decision, but pretty swiftly decided it was time for his exit:
He was given some time to think about it but people think he's 100% done. He had what I'm told was a concussion scare and that's what did him in.

Ervin has only competed once on NXT TV, that being this past January when he and Humberto Carrillo came up short in a tag match against the Street Profits.
