NXT

WWE has sent one main roster star to NXT and that’s Mike Kanellis. 

WWE held an NXT house show on Friday in Melbourne, FL at the Melbourne Auditorium where he teamed up with Tony Nese to defeat Mohamed Fahim and Nick Ogarelli in a tag team match.

As a result, Kanellis worked a match since September 24th where he lost to Chad Gable in seconds at a SmackDown TV event. It appears that Mike will be in NXT going forward. 

Back in October, he requested his release from WWE and took to social media to share the news with fans. Obviously, WWE didn’t grant him the release. 

This comes after Mike and his wife, Maria, had signed new WWE contracts that would’ve seen them be with the company for the next five years. In the statement, he confirmed that he signed a new deal back in June.

    It's his own fault he wasn't. Kanellis insisted they have him go straight to the main roster because he thought he was a bigger name than he really is

    That's were he should have started him off to begin with. Also not given him his wife's last name. That made him look like a punk.
