Bronson Reed Comments On WWE Release, Says Many Doors Are Now Open For Him

Bronson Reed was released by WWE on August 6 after over two-and-a-half years with the company.

On May 18, 2021, Reed captured his first title in WWE, winning the NXT North American Championship from Johnny Gargano in a Steel Cage Match. Reed's title reign would only last 42 days, however, dropping the belt to Isaiah "Swerve" Scott as a result of interference from Hit Row.

On July 21, Reed had his final match for the company, losing to Adam Cole.

Taking to social media, Reed posted the following statement regarding his release:

"I have had time to reflect now and process what has happened. I was very shocked, very upset. This just doesn't affect me, it affects my wife as well. We are here in a foreign country and my wife is a super positive person and has kept me positive as well. I just wanted to reach out to all you guys. I am very thankful for the love and support I have received online, it's incredible. It means a lot to me that a lot of you feel for free and will continue to follow me no matter what. I did want to thank NXT, I want to thank [Triple H] and [Shawn Michaels] for believing in me. I want to thank all the coaches; Terry Taylor, Scotty 2 Hottie, Normal Smiley, Steve Corino, those guys that I learned a lot from. I want to thank all the boys backstage as well. It was a great locker room to be a part of. I am staying positive and I do believe, I am bar none, the best super heavyweight in the world. I will continue to prove that. As they say, one door closes and another one opens. For me, many doors are open. Now, it's just about which one I want to walk through. Thank you very much for the support and love. Please, keep supporting, thanks."
