A WWE star has suggested a major character shake-up is on the way following his actions on this week’s NXT (July 18).
SCRYPTS (formerly known as Reggie) turned heads this week when he turned his back on tag partner Axiom mid-way through their match against the debuting team of Bronco Nima and Lucien Price.
This seemingly set up a brand new faction on Tuesday nights in the process and now SCRYPTS has suggested this allegiance will also spell a new beginning for the former 24/7 Champion.
Taking to Twitter, SCRYPTS wrote:
No more sommelier guy, no more 24/7 guy, no more Reggie, no more being disrespected by people that take me for granted..no more damn Mr nice guy.

So, it seems this change will be firmly in line with what we’ve seen of Nima and Price’s presentation thus far, providing a far different approach to previous iterations of SCRYPTS’ WWE character which, as he suggested, leaned to the sillier side.
SCRYPTS’ time under his current gimmick has been fairly short-lived, only re-debuting under his new moniker in November 2022, under a mask, and only unmasking again as recently as May.
The heel turn was not the only surprising occurrence on NXT this week as Raw’s Dominik Mysterio brought the 269-day North American Championship reign of Wes Lee to an end.
While Lee will likely seek a rematch against ‘Dirty’ Dom, there may be another name set to jump the queue before him – click here to find out who that is.
