Two more WWE developmental talents have announced their departures following Thursday’s releases.

Brooklyn Barlow (Brooke Vawter) and Kevin Ventura-Cortes have been added to the growing list of cuts.

Vawter posted a story on Instagram with the text:

As of today, I am no longer with NXT. Grateful to have experienced the WWE universe and everything that comes along with it. The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out WHY. Thank you

Ventura-Cortez posted a message on Instagram:

Thank you WWE for the opportunity of a lifetime — going to have to take a step away. But I’ve only just begun. La estoria todavía no está terminado. Because these eyes, they never lie.

Vawter was part of the WWE tryouts in Las Vegas in the summer of 2021 and made her debut in March 2022 on NXT Level Up. She was part of the women’s battle royal on the June 9, 2023, episode of NXT and last wrestled against Dani Palmer on the August 8 episode of Level Up.

Ventura-Cortes played tight end at Concordia University and was signed last year and was part of a class that was announced last November.

They joined Daniel McArthur and Alexis Gray among the developmental talent that have confirmed their releases.
