NXT’s most recent batch of releases came last Friday (August 6), when WWE released 13 names, including former North American Champion Bronson Reed and former NXT Tag Team Champion Bobby Fish.
The released NXT stars have a 30-day non-compete clause, and then are free to work for any other company they wish, whether it be AEW, IMPACT or ROH.
ROH added fuel to the fire earlier today, when they posted a tweet asking which of the released stars their fans wanted to see wrestle for the promotion.
With all of the recent releases, who from @WWENXT would you like to see compete in ROH?

It will be interesting to see where all the released talent lands in 30 days, and how many will surface in ROH.
It is now being reported that the NXT names released, namely Bronson Reed, were released because the higher-ups didn’t see them as ‘main roster stars’.
