Former NXT Announcer Believes Passion For Wrestling Led To WWE Release, Preview Styles vs Reigns At WWE Extreme Rules (Video)


Alex Reyes 

Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting former NXT announcer Alex Reyes (Alex Del Barrio), who was released earlier today, believes his love for wrestling is part of the reason he was let go. 

Pro Wrestling Sheet says sources close to Reyes said he was under the impression having a great passion for wrestling was part of the reason he, Rich Brennan and Kyle Edwards (Arda Ocal) were all recently let go from their WWE contracts. According to these sources, there weren’t any specific examples to give Reyes a reason why his role was reduced, but it was noted that WWE tends to frown on hiring ‘die-hard’ wrestling fans. 


Alex Reyes began working for WWE in November 2015 and served as both a backstage interviewer and live event host.
