Alleged “NXT reject spy” who was banned from AEW back under WWE deal

A few months ago, Chris Jericho complained that an “NXT reject” was responsible for leaking Dynamite spoilers online and after this person was caught, he was no longer welcomed in the promotion after just one match on Dark.

“We know who the spy is by the way, oh we know, and he’ll never be back in f*ckin AEW. NXT reject was the spy, so print that,” Jericho wrote at the time after this person spoiled Eric Bischoff as the moderator in the debate between Jericho and Orange Cassidy.

That alleged spy is believed to be Tino Sabbatelli, who according to PWInsider.com, has signed a new WWE deal after he was let go in April due to coronavirus cost-cutting measures.

His name was never 100% confirmed as the leaker, but of all the former NXT stars who did wrestle on Dark, he’s the only one who did one match and was let go, leading to a process of elimination by the wrestling media to see who was the culprit.

The 37-year-old former NFL player joined WWE in 2014 and was part of the Breaking Ground NXT series on the WWE Network. While he was part of the NXT live event tours, he wasn’t featured much on NXT television. Sabbatello was released on April 17.
