    While it’s unknown if the creation of NXT Europe is the exact reason for the talent being released, it does come at exactly the same time. The official announcement of NXT Europe did note that it would be reimagining the brand as well as its talent pipeline with a “Pan European focus,” so it’s likely that WWE is attempting to bring in some new talent to grow into major superstars, as they did with former NXT UK talent Rhea Ripley, Doudrop, Gunther, and Butch.
