In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, WWE superstars come and go, but few manage to create a buzz around their potential exit.
One such superstar, who has been making waves recently, is none other than Jagger Reid, formerly known as James Drake.
With his contract set to expire soon, Reid has been dropping hints about his and his tag team partner’s future plans, leaving fans and pundits alike speculating.
The Schism’s Public Request
Earlier this year, WWE’s Rip Fowler and Jagger Reid, once known as the Grizzled Young Veterans, made headlines when they became members of the faction called the Schism.
In a surprising move, both Fowler and Reid publicly asked for their release from WWE in April. However, the company did not grant their request.
This led to increased chatter about their future, especially when both superstars disclosed on Twitter that their contracts would end in October.
They didn’t mince words, making it clear that they intended to leave once their contracts concluded.
Teasing the Fans
As the expiration date of his contract approaches, Reid has been actively engaging with his fanbase.
Recently, he took to Twitter, hinting at his departure and sparking curiosity about potential matchups in 2024. His tweet read, “2024 is only 4 months away. Vs.??? LMK.”
This cryptic message has fans wondering who Reid and his partner might face next year, outside the WWE umbrella.
Recent Developments in NXT
Adding fuel to the fire, The Dyad, another name associated with Reid and Fowler, recently emerged victorious against the Creed Brothers in a high-stakes “Losers Leave NXT” match.
This victory set the stage for a new storyline between the two teams on NXT, further complicating Reid’s hinted departure.
What Lies Ahead?
The wrestling community is abuzz with speculation. Will Reid and Fowler truly leave WWE, or is this all part of a larger storyline? Only time will tell.
One thing is certain: Reid’s potential exit has captured the attention of fans worldwide, and whatever decision he makes, it’s bound to have significant implications for the world of professional wrestling.
