TWO MORE WWE NXT RELEASES TODAY

It appears Bull Dempsey was not the only departure from WWE NXT.

PWInsider.com has confirmed that Sylvester LeFort and Marcus Louis have also been released.

Louis, 24, is French wrestler who previously played professional rugby and was regularly featured on WWE NXT as one of the Legionnaires.   His run climaxed with his head being shaved after an angle with Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady dumped a bucket of hair removal cream on his head.  He then morphed into a character that had lost his mind after the incident and played a pretty convincing crazy person.  He hadn't been utilized beyond enhancement work in some time.  He was signed in 2013.

Sylvester LeFort, 31, was also a big part of WWE NXT for a time period as he was regularly managing and appearing on the series as sort of a throwback manager similar in style to the characters that would populate WWF in the 1980s.  Originally trained by Lance Storm as a wrestler, he was trained in 2012 after several years of wrestling internationally.  While he could go in the ring, his persona was always pushed as a manager for the most part and he hadn't appeared on TV often since a storyline with Enzo and Cass ran it's course.

PWInsider.com is working to confirm if there were any additional releases from either the NXT or main roster today.
