kevin steenAccording to, the backstage feeling in WWE is that Kevin Steen will debut at the next set of NXT TV tapings from Full Sail University. WWE is said to be staggering the debuts of top NXT signees like Kenta, Fergal Devitt and Kevin Steen so that they can maximize the impact of each debut.

Recently Released NXT Name Labeled a “Cena Guy”

As we noted last week, NXT wrestler Troy McClain was released by WWE along with NXT Diva Kendall Skye.

According to The Wrestling Observer, McClain’s NXT release came as a surprise to many backstage in WWE, as he was considered a “John Cena guy” which many felt would protect McClain from being cut.

Cena spotted McClain working out in a gym at The University of Southern California a few years back and got him a tryout with WWE. McClain was also endorsed by the likes of Jim Ross and Gerald Brisco, who felt he had the potential to become the next John Cena.
