What happens when you peak in NXT?

WWE is experiencing an interesting problem with certain talents peaking in NXT and bombing on the main roster. So what are some possible solutions to this?

A glimpse of things to come?


Perhaps in WWE, Fergal Devitt will paint himself kind of like licensed comic book characters (in this case, I'm getting Punisher) and Kevin Steen's more PG chant will become "Fight, Steen, Fight"? They're just going to keep teasing us with these images until we go insane, aren't they? Via Kevin Steen's Twitter.

Shaul Guerrero claims she left WWE in 2012 to recover from an eating disorder


"Actually, I went into rehab for an eating disorder. I was really close to Joey Mercury when I was in FCW, he was my mentor and my coach. He, along with the strength and conditioning coach there at the time, noticed that I was really sick and I just wasn't mentally okay and physically I was doing a really bad job of keeping up with what I needed to do and they finally convinced me to go into rehab for a long time disease I had. So I took two months [off] and stayed in a [rehab] facility and from then on, I just didn’t know how to come back into wrestling and still keep my recovery intact because this business is very much focused on how you look. So I was just not ready for that kind of challenge, so I took a whole year off. I really focused on myself and really needed to get healthy: mentally, emotionally [and] spiritually, and that's where I was."

In an interview with Headlocks2Headlines.com's Chris Kelly, Shaul Guerrero reveals the shocking reason why she left NXT in the autumn of 2012 for a year. There were rumors at the time that "the business lifestyle may not be good for her" and "she may not have been emotionally ready for it", given that she was only 21 years old at the time. I guess we now knows what that meant. Congratulations to Shaul for being so open about such a controversial topic and for managing to recover from such a difficult problem.
