Unhappiness Over Kevin Owens
We're told some of the talent in NXT are upset with Kevin Owens already getting called up to the main roster (his contract has already been converted). It's a situation where some people have been in developmental forever and they see a new guy come right in and get fast tracked.
Morale has been much better since Bill DeMott left but the last couple of weeks have featured a period of complaints because of the situation with Owens. Tyler Breeze was one name in particular that was very vocal complaining about guys being stuck down there for so long while Owens waltzes right into a major push.
Update on Severe Injury
Tyson Kidd suffered a vertebrae injury in his bout against Samoa Joe last week. WWE expects him to be out for a few months at minimum but it's too early to tell if it will heal without surgery. If his body doesn't respond well to treatment, he'll need surgery, which will delay his return even longer. It was described to us as a "wait and see" approach to see if he can avoid having cervical fusion surgery.
