Regarding the release, WWE posted the following statement on its website:
“World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of WWE Smackdown Superstar Kaval (Brandon Silvestry) as of today, December 23, 2010. We wish Kaval the best in all future endeavors.”
Jim Ross commented on the matter, saying only on Twitter that “Kaval’s release from WWE surprised me. Don’t know the circumstances. Kaval won’t have any issues finding work. I wish him my best.”

Although WWE CEO Vince McMahon ostensibly created NXT to push new talent – something WWE desperately needs – it now appears (and that may change as more details of Kaval’s release become known) that NXT stars will be given only a very small window to succeed in WWE before McMahon and company move on.
