Rhyno Update

During last night's Monday Night Raw broadcast, tag team partners Rhyno and Heath Slater were forced to face each other by Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin in order to keep their job, with Slater getting the victory. The storyline was that Rhyno was fired, while Slater learned he wasn't getting to stay a pro wrestler, but would instead become a referee for the Raw brand.

We've received a number of questions about Rhyno's status with the company. As of this morning, we are told he is still slated for the South American tour that kicks off tomorrow in Santiago, Chile, so this would appear to be something storyline-based, not an actual exit from the company by the former ECW World Champion.

Dave is speculating that he may do an NXT run since he's not doing much

Which makes sense on the one hand, but one the other hand, how do you kayfabe justify Rhyno winding up in NXT but not, say, Curt Hawkins?

I think the bents thing to do would be to have him be a performance center coach while using him to headline on the NXT Florida loop shows.
