Following reports that Nick Miller has been released from WWE, it appears NXT UK star Tucker and developmental talent Taishan Dong also gone from the company.
Tucker, who is of Northern Irish origin, was signed to NXT UK and had competed in the 2017 WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament. He was eliminated by Tyler Bate on Day 1. He had also competed for the 2018 edition, where he lost in the first round against Joe Coffey. On NXT UK, Tucker had mostly been used as an enhancement talent.
The 28 year-old is an over name in the Northern Ireland wrestling circuit and has been a Irish Junior Heavyweight Champion in Irish promotion Fight Factory Pro Wrestling, as well as two-time Pro Wrestling Ulster Champion.
While nothing is officially confirmed yet, just like Nick Miller, Tucker’s profile is also gone from WWE’s website so it may be an indication that the company is soon going to announce their release.
Taishan Dong is a 7-foot tall boxer from China who had took part in the three-day talent tryout at the WWE Performance Center in October last year. He was announced as part of the latest class of WWE recruits in July this year. Dave Meltzer reported that it is being said that he quit the company on his own volition some time ago.
