Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens is reporting that the WWE Performance Center in Orlando is running out of locker space due to the sheer amount of talent WWE is stockpiling.
He is also reporting that a number of NXT stars are unhappy with promises not being kept, and that many are seeking to be released as soon as possible.
“On the real theirs so many unhappy people in NXT. Heard lots of people getting empty promises and wanting to get released. And they are quite literally running out of lockers for all the people they are stockpiling in the PC.”

It was rumoured by indie talent David Starr that NXT stars were promised improved contracts after moving to the USA Network, but this is yet to happen.
NXT does have an insane amount of people on its books, and only some of those can actually be featured even semi-regularly on Wednesday nights, so a mixture of broken promises and lack of TV time may well be enough for many to request a release.
We will keep you updated with this story and if anyone does actually make a release request.
