EXCLUSIVE: WWE Very High on Current NXT Member, More

Nick Paglino

Backstage sources in WWE have told WrestleZone that WWE management is very high on Justin Gabriel, not only for his in-ring ability but also for the way he’s been handling backstage politics.

Gabriel found himself on the wrong side of a lot of what was described as "veterans baiting him" because of his off-camera relationship with WWE Diva Kelly Kelly.

"A few years ago, CM Punk was dating Maria Kanellis," a Monday Night Raw wrestler told us, "HHH, Ric Flair, and some of the other veterans gave Maria a hard time about dating a guy they labeled an indy worker."

"Kelly’s been through this before, but Justin is brand new to the business," the wrestler told us, "but he’s handled it like a total pro, and it’s won him a lot of points with the leaders of the locker room."

Justin Gabriel is a 2nd generation wrestler, and was trained by his father, Paul Lloyd Senior in South Africa.
