Some NXT trainees are fed up.
Fightful spoke with nearly ten people at the WWE Performance Center in recent weeks about the return to the venue after a second outbreak within WWE. As reported on Fightful Select, there are many that were frustrated and feel their health was being compromised as a result.
NXT trainees were set to return to the renovated WWE Performance Center on Thursday, October 8, but many weren't comfortable with returning for obvious reasons. Months prior, NXT talent were told there would be no heat on them if they didn't feel safe coming in and training, but that they might need to "explain it to Vince." We've not heard any instances of that actually happening.
However, NXT trainees in contact with Fightful have expressed their discomfort with training, with multiple citing the number of "COVID truthers" on the NXT roster that just don't take the situation seriously.
There have also been a threat of fines, although we haven't heard of specific amounts.
