Update: Two More NXT Names Released from WWE

Mike Killam

NXT Superstar Sakamoto is next in the list of names being released from their WWE contracts today, following the announcement that Derrick Bateman and Briley Pierce had been fired Friday morning. 

Sakamoto has been working down in developmental after briefly appearing as a follower of Lord Tensai on Monday Night Raw, before WWE scrapped the gimmick entirely, eventually pairing up "Sweet T" with Brodus Clay. 

Although we have yet to confirm, PWInsider is reporting that NXT Diva Audrey Marie has also been released.
