WWE Manager Reveals Potential New Client After Star Released By The Company

WWE Manager Reveals Potential New Client After Star Released By The Company WWE

On tonight’s episode of WWE NXT it seems that a manager may have found his latest client after a match was brokered to settle a score.

In a backstage segment, Lexis King incensed Robert Stone yet again, leading to Ava walking up and making King a match, but saying he would only find out the opponent when he was in the ring.

It was later revealed when it was time for the match that King’s opponent would be Dante Chen, who was introduced by Stone himself.

In the end, Dante Chen would score an upset as he defeated Lexis King in his NXT television return.

While Dante Chen has continued to appear in NXT Level Up and at house shows, this was his first time on TV since October 2023 where he lost to King at Halloween Havoc night one.

In a backstage segment after the win, Stone was shown hyping up Chen after his win when they were approached by Ava.

With Ava noting that Stone was the one who had petitioned to make the match, she also congratulated him for ‘making a star’ tonight.

Stone of course was previously paired with Von Wagner but Wagner was released by the company earlier this month.

Similarly, Chen was primed to kick off a tag team with Boa, but Boa’s contract is expiring and won’t be renewed.

Whether or not the new pair of Stone and Chen remain together or if their alliance was for one night in an effort to thwart the cocky Lexis King wasn’t made clear.
