Percy Watson leaving WWE to pursue other interests

Post by ICW » May 11th, 2019, 5:07 pm

Former WWE wrestler and NXT broadcaster Percy Watson has left the company, first reported by SC Sirens' Casey Michael and confirmed by our Dave Meltzer.

There is no official word as to why Watson quit, but Michael said it was due to Watson (aka Nick McNeil) wanting to go into acting. It has yet to be confirmed whether WWE has granted him a full release.

The 37-year-old was a commentator on NXT TV, 205 Live, Main Event, and Worlds Collide, but with the recent introduction of Beth Phoenix to the NXT team and Aiden English on 205 Live commentary before that, Watson's future in the company was seemingly in doubt.

Watson signed a developmental deal in 2009 and worked in FCW/NXT through 2013. He was part of the season season of NXT under their previous setup, paired with then-WWE wrestler MVP. He did make some appearances on WWE Superstars with Titus O'Neil before returning to NXT for their fifth season. He eventually was released in 2013.

Watson returned to NXT, and eventually WWE, as a commentator in 2016.

Yeah, not a great announcer (or wrestler) by any stretch.
