He hopes to get re-signed... Former WWE NXT Rookie Jacob Novak had an interview with Hawkeye News about his release and pay from WWE. He said a hip injury lead to him being cut from the show. He said he didn't know how long rehab would take, so WWE released him. He is now looking at international wrestling options but is hoping to be re-signed by WWE now that he's healthy again. He also talked about the pay structure of FCW, which is "basics and an opportunity." Novak said: "Wrestlers get paid way less than people think. I started out making only 500 dollars a week for the FCW. It's just kind of weird to have thousands and thousands of Twitter followers, and to get fan mail daily, yet receive tiny paychecks."
