Sawyer Fulton on original SAnitY plans

Former NXT star Sawyer Fulton recently did an interview with The Pancakes and Powerslams Show about his release from the company and his future plans.

During the interview, Fulton noted that the original plans for the SAnitY group that he was a part of in 2016 before being replaced by Killain Dain was set to feature himself, former NXT star Marcus Louis and former NXT star/current Impact star Sami Callihan (Solomon Crowe) with Callihan as the leader towards the end of 2015 before Callihan requested and was granted his release from NXT.

“So, that whole situation, we had a lot of ideas, and everybody had something that they wanted to get out of this. And we pitched a whole bunch of ideas with Joe Belcastro [lead NXT writer]. We’re all feeling good about it, but we never really come together. And I know one of the biggest things was Marcus [Louie] and I were very worried that it was just going to become a machine to Sami. And Sami’s one of my best friends, but we were worried that we were just going to become nameless lackeys to Sami’s Raven. That worried me, so, so much, because it seemed like that’s where it was going. And we started butting heads.”
