– Earlier this month on Twitter, Sasha Banks hyped a new WWE NXT Superstar who goes by the name Dylan Miley. She said, “He’s going to be BIG!!!” Miley, who is reportedly 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds, has been training at the WWE Performance Center since at least September. In the above video, he can be seen participating in a wrestling drill with fellow NXT talent during a media event held last month at the WWE Performance Center promoting WWE 2K15.
Miley has been seen at NXT live events the past two weeks as a staff member. Male NXT wrestlers who have yet to debut at live events work as staff at these shows.
– It was reported today that WWE has released Willie McClinton, Jr. (Willie Mack), a wrestler known for his work with California-based promotions Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, just before he was scheduled to begin training at the Performance Center. According to F4WOnline.com, he was let go a few days ago over the results of his medical or physical test.
It would appear that Mack did not actually sign a contract with WWE. PWInsider.com reported several months ago that Mack was signing with WWE, but rescinded the report after company sources indicated he had not yet taken the required medical testing that would allow him to sign. The website then reported on September 1 that he had undergone medical testing in late August and would be signing with the company thereafter.
– A few 1995 episodes of Raw have been added to the Raw Replays section on the WWE Network: August 14, August 21 and September 11. Raw did not air on August 28 and September 4 due to U.S. Open tennis coverage on the USA Network.
