Sawyer Fulton Responds to His Release from WWE NXT

Former WWE NXT wrestler, Sawyer Fulton, responds to his recent release from the developmental territory.

Fulton’s tweet states that he’s ‘not ashamed’ and also implies a return to WWE in the future.

Fulton’s release from his NXT contract occurred on November 3rd.

Fulton’s History

Sawyer Fulton made his debut in pro wrestling at Mid-Ohio Wrestling of 2010. He would then sign with WWE NXT in 2012 before making his NXT (television) debut the following year.

Fulton would serve as enhancement talent between 2013 and 2015. He mainly teamed with Angelo Dawkins in various tag team matches.

By the spring of 2016, he would team up with Alexander Wolfe before the duo joined Eric Young and Nikki Cross. The four formed SAnitY. The stable debuted the following the autumn.

Fulton and Wolfe worked as a tag team, then reached the semi-finals in the 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament.

The following winter of 2016, Fulton was injured and immediately taken off NXT television and, overall, NXT events.

During the November 2016 NXT tapings, Fulton’s jacket was stomped on by Eric Young and Fulton’s replacement, Killian Dain. Thus, Fulton was evicted from SAnitY.

Fulton has not wrestled for WWE since November of 2016. And now, almost a full year later, he has been released.

Writer’s Thoughts

It’s unfortunate that Sawyer Fulton was released due to an injury and just couldn’t get over the hump.

The setback did cost him a place in one of pro wrestling’s hottest stables of 2017. Many people don’t remember Fulton as an original SAnitY member. However, he was injured at the wrong time.

I’m glad he’s upbeat about his release. After all, he’s only 27 years old. He has time to make an impact.
