Former NXT Superstar Bronson Reed has revealed the discussion he had with Shawn Michaels following his release from WWE.
The former NXT North American Champion was a casualty of roster cuts in the company as he was released from his WWE contract on August 6th.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio Bronson Reed discussed his conversation with Shawn Michaels after his release as says The Heartbreak Kid was just as shocked as he was:
“I got to speak with Shawn (Michaels) right after my release. He actually texted me, very shocked, and just said ‘you’ve got to show them that was a mistake. Keep working.’ It was not something that we saw coming. I was speaking with him at the previous tapings about future storylines and where we were heading. In my mind, creative already had plans for me until the end of the year.
“So I got to speak with him. I didn’t get to speak with Hunter (Triple H) after my release. He was obviously big in my development in NXT. He’s going through some things at the moment, so I’m not too sure on that front. But all the other producers and coaches did reach out to me, which was really nice.”
Bronson Reed has also recently opened up about his potential future in the wrestling business. The Australian star says he’s currently in talks with some “major promotions.”
