Two NXT Talent Released By WWE
PWInsider reported that there have been NXT releases. Two of the five names on the list—Erica Yan and Sloane Jacobs—were from the women’s roster. Ru Feng, Damaris Griffin, and Bodhi Haywood joined them.
Erica Yan joined WWE in 2021 and made appearances on 205 Live, NXT Level Up, and just two episodes of NXT programming. She lost her first NXT match, which she played against Elektra Lopez. Her most recent match was a tag team match against Sloane Jacobs and Ivy Nile on Level Up in September, which they lost to.
Sloane Jacobs is the second name made public. Jacobs, a talented 19-year-old wrestler known as The Notorious Mimi, has competed on the independent scene. In March 2022, she signed with WWE. Early in the year, she competed in the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament but fell to Fallon Henley. On NXT’s Level Up, she managed to score a minor victory over Thea Hail. She played Indi Hartwell in her most recent match on Level Up on October 7.
WWT wishes both of these women continued success in their careers.
