Bodhi Hayward
Sloane Jacobs
Erica Yan
Damaris Griffin

Bodhi is the only name I’ve ever even heard of.

That's really all I can say because I don't know what the more is. But you know, you got a bunch of guys and whatever and they're in Florida and there's a loop and god only knows what can happen."

New NXT announcer Booker T. is already in some hot water for "homophobic" comments he made about "Super Diva" Quincy Elliot. Although WWE has had gay characters before, Elliot is by far the most flamboyantly gay as far as real life matching the character. Booker has made some very benign comments on commentary and on his podcast about not being sure if this guy is ready or is very good. It should be noted that he's said similar things about other green talents who aren't gay, but that doesn't stop the mob.

Booker addressed the "controversy" on his podcast, saying that Quincy just hasn't given him or the fans a reason to get behind him yet and it has nothing to do with homophobia. He then probably dug his grave deeper by comparing the situation to Goldust, saying at first he didn't like the character but then he loved working with him, an admittedly poor attempt to prove he wasn't homophobic. This was not a great comparison as fans were quick to point out that Goldust was a character played by a straight man and Elliot really is gay and is more or less being himself on TV.

Elliot wrestled for 3 years on the California indy scene as Congo Crush but didn't have that many matches since a good part of that time was during Covid, so he has very little experience prior to coming to the PC.  He seems to be playing up any controversy surrounding him by putting this on his Twitter profile: "WWE/NXT one tweet away from getting cancelled".  He's also tweeted such gems as "Some of y’all have never touched grass or ass and it shows" and "Praying on my downfall don’t make you religious men".  He seems to be setting himself up for a job for life no matter how bad he is, because how could they ever fire him without the obvious cards being played?   

Nothing will likely come of this, but there are those on Twitter asking for Booker to be removed from NXT commentary. But hopefully those people will quit Twitter now that Elon Musk is in charge, so problem solved.

Meltzer is reporting that he was cut for a poor work ethic and tardiness.

This Zoey Stark promo started in 1942 and is going nowhere. I’m hoping Marina Shafir comes out to interrupt her.
