It’s no big secret that WWE’s developmental system has been going through some major changes over the last few months. Back in September WWE relaunched NXT as NXT 2.0, and in recent weeks the company has released some key figures who were involved with the brand.

Scotty 2 Hotty had been working as a coach at the WWE Performance Center for years now, but he recently requested to be released. During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho the former WWE Tag Team Champion explained why he wanted to leave the company and why he felt it was time to move on.

“I was just not having fun, and I knew it was time to move on. And I told myself when I came back that was one of my goals, was to walk away on my own this time.”

Scotty 2 Hotty also noted that the dress code is something that also changed at the Performance Center, and at one point Vince McMahon requested that the coaches dye their beards and get haircuts.

“We got to the Performance Center for television, we don’t have any fans outside. For the longest time, there weren’t any fans. And then in the building, it’s all in-house people, so we were wearing our NXT tracksuits. But as soon it started to change and Hunter went away. The other guys started to come in it was, ‘okay we are back to business casual now.’ Then the next week, this is awesome. Next week it was, ‘Vince wants the coaches looking younger. So we need you guys to start dying your beards and cutting your hair.’ The coaches. I literally lost sleep over that.”
