Scrapped SAnitY NXT Return Plans Revealed

Released NXT star Alexander Wolfe has discussed the scrapped return of SAnitY, and who the faction were set to feud with after the reunion.

Eric Young, Killian Dain and Alexander Wolfe were officially separated during the 2019 Superstar Shake-Up, marking the end of SAnitY. Wolfe has now revealed that there were plans for the beloved NXT faction to reunite on the gold brand.

Speaking with Ringsiders Wrestling, Wolfe explained that SAnitY would’ve returned to feud with Imperium. Stating that Triple H called him when Eric Young was released last year, Wolfe noted that the whole ordeal was a sour pill to swallow.

Also discussing his own “release”, Wolfe said:

“But going back to the plan, actually the plan before the pandemic hit was to bring SAnitY back together. But then the pandemic hit and then EY (Eric Young) got released, and what I know is that not even Triple H knew about EY. The only thing  and EY, he said it in an interview, he (Triple H) was one of the first guys to give him the call and, ‘Sorry man, I didn’t know about that’, and I don’t know this, just (guessing), they probably tried to rehire him but, as I can relate right now, there’s no animosity, there’s no hatred but it’s a sour pill to swallow that they kind of like deny you and you kind of think, ‘Okay guys, you don’t want to have me? F you’. We’re all humans, we all feel.

“That was the plan to bring SAnitY back just to have all three of us together and then we would feud with the three guys of Imperium but then they have to figure out what can we do, blah, blah, blah and I thought because of this and even with EY being gone from the company that they wanna do something with Killian (Dain) and me and maybe with Drake (Maverick) together then or maybe with somebody else.

“We form kind of like a SAnitY 2.0 where a lot of people would say, ‘Where’s EY? Where’s EY?’ Because you know, they have to complain. But in the end, it (didn’t) happen that way. In the end, they did budget cuts and then as I got told, I was on the list for that so they will not fire me but because my contract is up on June 15, they will not renew me at that point.”

Eric Young was released in April 2020. Wolfe clarified that he wasn’t actually released, he was instead informed that WWE will not be renewing his contract when it expires in June.

EJ Nduka (AKA Ezra Judge) was informed of his WWE release last week. His departure reportedly shocked many people within WWE, with Nduka being viewed as a promising prospect.

Nduka has since recalled an incident involving Drake Wuertz, where the two had words with one another before an NXT show.
