In a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Eric Young revealed that he and Triple H had discussed plans for him to return to NXT post-WrestleMania 36 before he was released on April 15.
“I can tell you now Scott D’Amore was the second person I heard from when the news came out. This is going to sound weird, but Triple H was the very first. He was unaware that it was happening. He’s in a different position in the company now. [We] have always had a very good relationship. The original plan after WrestleMania was for me to go back to NXT,” reveals Young.“We had been talking a lot about ideas and what might happen. When they said they were going to release talent, I knew for sure I was going to be on that list. It’s nothing personal. I don’t take it personally. I’m not bitter in any way. One person made a massive mistake. I’m not the first person he made a mistake on and I won’t be the last.”
Young joined NXT in 2016 and was moved to SmackDown in April 2018. Fellow Sanity members Killian Dain ultimately returned to NXT last year, while Alexander Wolfe joined NXT UK. EY is now back in Impact Wrestling for the foreseeable future.
