Just as the WWE announces its new Performance Center class today including Matt Riddle, Chelsea Green and Punishment Martinez (check that out here), the company has reportedly let three other NXT Superstars go with no fanfare.
According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Tian Bing, Jason Cheng and Gabriel Ealy have all been released by WWE this past week. If you remember, it was reported back in June that Gabriel’s twin brother, Uriel, had been released from the company (see that story here) with no details as to why one was kept over the other. The Ealy Brothers made scarce appearances on NXT TV, most notably against TM61 earlier this year, but primarily only worked NXT Live Events.
Tian Bing received a lot of attention when he was signed from China in 2016 and was even featured on last night’s episode of NXT in a loss to Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. He also even has a WrestleMania under his belt when he competed at WrestleMania 33 in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
Jason Cheng, who worked simply as just Jason, is also from China who signed on along with six others also including Big Boa and Xia Li. Much like The Ealy Brothers, Jason made rare appearances on NXT television and primarily worked Live Events, finding himself consistently on the losing end of matches.
