Chase Parker on communication in WWE and how they were working on new stuff the day of their release: “Since, like, the month of October, we were doing something every week. Especially on NXT. finally getting, like, those… fleshing out those characters, which was always the idea, but it was a slow start. Unfortunately in the line of pro wrestling job security isn’t always something that is a checkmark in the box. Like, we all know this. Entertainment industry in general, it’s very risky, so you know these things, you know when you sign contracts ‘oh, this might not last the time that it’s supposed to.’ For our end, there’s always great communication between… whether it be Triple H, or Shawn Michaels or the coaches at the Performance Center, the writing team, the producers. Great communication all around. So it was… again, that’s kind of why it comes as a surprise because we were still in the process of working on stuff that day. That day!”
