Those who watched NXT this Tuesday night would have never thought it would the last time they have seen Alexander Wolfe in an NXT ring. After a losing effort against Killian Dain, Wolfe was attacked by his Imperium stablemates, Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner. His being thrown out of Imperium was also meaning being thrown out of NXT. Wolfe, real name Axel Tischler, confirmed the news on social media yesterday night.
Just for the record:
My WWE contract will expire on June 15th.
That means I'm a free agent on June 16th.
I have a lot in my head right now
so let's keep it short:
