Joseph Conners billed as a former NXT UK talent.

Dating back to 2017, Joseph Conners has been affiliated with WWE’s UK branch and eventually joined the NXT UK talent roster. Conners recently removed all WWE references from his social media pages and uploaded a video during which he stated that he will never again be treated like furniture, feel disposable or let someone toss him into the wayside like trash.

Conners appeared at the conclusion of British Wrestling Revolution’s ‘The Last Stand’ show and ambushed BWR Champion Robbie X. Connors is also being promoted for Wrestle Carnival’s January and February events as a “former NXT UK star”.

The last time Conners competed on the weekly NXT UK show was in July when he scored a win over Tristan Archer. Since NXT UK’s restart in September 2020, Conners wrestled in a total of seven TV matches.

On NXT UK a week or so ago, Jinny came out 5o the ring saying her partnership with Conners was done, so I sensed something was up. This confirms it.
