Impact Wrestling World Champion Eric Young appeared on David Penzer’s podcast.
During it, he revealed that he was supposed to make a return to WWE NXT before the COVID-19 pandemic and was released due to budget cuts. Here is what he had to say (H/T to WrestlingNews.co):
“I was still talking with Hunter and he was very interested in having me back in NXT after WrestleMania. That is where I was supposed to go. Obviously plans changed and the pandemic happened and I got furloughed or fired. I say fired but they are going to say furloughed because it sounds better.”
