NXT Talent Needed Police Escort
Due to the fact that many SmackDown superstars and crew were stuck in Saudi Arabia after WWE Crown Jewel, stars from NXT were flown up from Florida to Buffalo to appear on the latest SmackDown episode.
Now, it’s being reported that the NXT talent almost didn’t make it to SmackDown as well.
According to POST Wrestling’s John Pollock, the flight taking the NXT talent to Buffalo only landed at 7:55 pm, mere moments before SmackDown was supposed to go on the air.
“They had a police escort to get them to the building,” writes Pollock.
“One person I spoke with added they could not have cut it any closer to get everyone in place for the third segment when Shayna Baszler made her appearance,” he added.
Jordan Myles Has Been On Medical Leave Since September
NXT talent Jordan Myles, who is currently embroiled in controversy over “racism” in the pro wrestling world, has apparently been on medical leave since around September.
Myles, who won the 2019 NXT Breakout tournament and challenged NXT Champion Adam Cole in August, hasn’t really been seen on TV or in the performance center since.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Myles is on medical leave but it’s not for an injury. The nature of the leave is supposed to be confidential which is why WWE has not commented.
According to PWInsider, Myles has not been to the WWE Performance Center for training for the past few weeks.
