WWE Releases Three NXT Stars

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE have released Tian Bing, Cheng Yuxiang, and Gabriel Ealy from their NXT contracts.

Tian Bing was signed by WWE in June of 2016, becoming only the second mainland Chinese development signee in the company’s history (though WWE advertised him as the first). He made his debut for the yellow brand in October that same year. Bing was a participant in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania 33 where he eliminated Fandango and Tyler Breeze before being eliminated by Dolph Ziggler.

Cheng Yuxiang signed with WWE among 6 other Chinese wrestlers in September 2016, and he made his NXT debut on October 12th 2017 against Oney Lorcan under the ring name Jason. He also wrestled against the likes of Kassius Ohno, Kona Reeves, the War Raiders, and many others throughout his brief career.

Gabriel Ealy made his debut in March of 2016 in a tag team with his twin brother Uriel, who was also released by WWE this past June. The two tagged together against many notable NXT teams including the Authors of Pain, SAnitY, the Street Profits, and Heavy Machinery. Gabriel also wrestled in many singles matches against the likes of Kassius Ohno, Lars Sullivan, and No Way Jose.

Bing, Cheng, and Ealy are three out of eight NXT stars released by WWE so far this year, the other five being Abbey Laith, Sage Beckett and Ming on March 8th, Zada on June 2nd, and the aforementioned Uriel Ealy on June 4th.
