— Meltzer added that Sullivan wasn’t at the most recent NXT tapings – even in a backstage capacity – and has been missing from live events as well, so something is going on for sure, but he isn’t exactly sure what. Bryan Alvarez added that Sullivan was previously very active on Twitter, but he suddenly stopped almost a month ago and there had been no tweets from him in almost a month until he popped up with a random “Lars Sullivan is da man” message two days ago.
