He said that seeing the news of the release one of the fans had said ‘NXT has just been released by the WWE.’ Henry admitted he giggled noting it. He said that WWE should focus on the job security of the talents which was now become unprecedented:

“I shouldn’t giggle at that, but the point about it is that there have been so many releases that people are starting to look at, ‘Damn man, the writing’s on the wall. I could be out of here at any time. Maybe I need to focus on job security.”
