WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has confirmed that The Dyad have parted ways with NXT after allowing their contracts to expire.
Speaking on his “Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker discussed the exits of Jagger Reid & Rip Fowler. He said,
“A couple of guys who just exited from the WWE as well, The Dyad. Those guys just let their contract run out, they’re going to be leaving the company. They may be showing up in AEW, you never know. They may be going back to the UK.
“Reid, Fowler, those guys were actually two of my favorites and I thought they had something good going for them. Just recall the Grizzled Young Veterans … I liked those guys and I hate to see them go.”
The Dyad requested their releases from WWE in April of this year but were denied, and it was reported last month that the pair were expected to leave the promotion.

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has recently confirmed that The Dyad, consisting of Jagger Reid and Rip Fowler, have decided to part ways with NXT after allowing their contracts to expire. Booker T discussed their exits on his “Hall of Fame” podcast, expressing his disappointment at seeing them leave the company.
The Dyad had requested their releases from WWE back in April of this year, but their requests were denied. However, it was reported last month that the duo was expected to leave the promotion once their contracts expired. Now, it seems that their departure has become official.
Booker T expressed his fondness for The Dyad, stating that they were two of his favorites and he believed they had a promising future. He even compared them to the Grizzled Young Veterans, another tag team he admired. Booker T’s comments suggest that he sees potential in The Dyad and is disappointed to see them go.
As for their future plans, Booker T speculated that The Dyad might end up in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) or return to the UK wrestling scene. It remains to be seen where they will ultimately land, but fans will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on their next move.
The departure of The Dyad highlights the ongoing talent movement within the wrestling industry.

This trend has sparked excitement among fans who are eager to see fresh matchups and storylines unfold.
