Several reports in the past few weeks suggested that NXT Announcer Percy Watson was on his way out of the company to pursue a career in acting. However, these reports seem to have been confirmed.
Beth Phoenix has now made her debut as an announcer on NXT and has taken Watson’s spot on the table. Furthermore, Mauro Ranallo also sent out a farewell message to Watson on Twitter earlier this week.
My man @WWEPercyWatson is class personified . His commitment to growing as an announcer was commendable . He will excel in any future endeavors. Thanks for being a great broadcast partner. ❤️🙏🏻 https://t.co/5sLBXHVIk9

Now, Dave Meltzer has confirmed Watson’s departure from the company in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter. However, no official “future endeavour” tweet has been issued by the company regarding Watson’s release.
Either way, we hope that Watson makes it big in his upcoming career as an actor.
