Von Wagner Aligns With Robert Stone; NXT Gives Odyssey Jones Update

Von Wagner Aligns With Robert Stone

Robert Stone found a new man to put his chips behind in Von Wagner. On the January 25 episode of WWE NXT 2.0, Wagner and Stone made their presence known. The powerhouse attacked Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward after the Chase University representatives lost their match against Grizzled Young Veterans in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

Stone was seemingly the man who paid Wagner’s fine after he attacked Hayward in the crowd a few weeks ago; in doing so, he helped the big man evade his suspension. Stone has regularly bounced around as a manager in NXT, but an alliance with Wagner may finally be where WWE lets him find his groove.

NXT Provides Odyssey Jones Update

It’s not looking good for Odyssey Jones. It was revealed on the January 25 episode that Jones, who suffered an injury at the January 11 tapings during a match against Saurav, appears to be out until the fall. The broadcast team announced that Jones had successful surgery for a ruptured patellar tendon, and this recovery will sideline him for several months. Harland attacked Jones, who was wearing a brace and using crutches, off-screen last week to officially take him out of action.
