WWE has released NXT talent Dakota Kai and Malcom Bivens.
Smith’s Sentiment: Wow. I believe Malcom Bivens made it clear that he didn’t want to re-sign with the company earlier this year, so that one is what it is. Still, Malcom is a tremendous asset and should have been thriving on the main roster with a stable.
Dakota Kai on the other hand, I don’t know. Dakota is an all around excellent talent; skills, character, looks… everything that should’ve been needed and yet WWE/NXT consistently dropped the ball with her. The only plus is that hopefully someone will sign her for comparable money to whatever WWE was paying, and use her. Ideally, that would be AEW, but it’s not like their women’s division gets much of a spotlight.
