Will Steen be NXT?
WWE has signed Willie Mack (real name Willie McClinton Jr.) to a developmental deal, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources.
Mack has been a regular on the California independent scene since 2006, most notably wrestling for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. He's got a ton of charisma and is really entertaining. This is a great signing in my opinion.
update from pwinsider
Although we have heard from sources inside and outside of WWE that Willie Mack was signed to a developmental deal, in the last few minutes, I've heard that my earlier report may be premature.
Mack has been on WWE's radar since going through a tryout camp, so it may that some believed he has been signed. I was told just now he hasn't undergone any of the WWE medical testing, which means that he can't be "officially" signed yet.
Once we get through coverage of the WWE conference call, I'll be looking more into this, but want to err on the side of caution, so I have pulled my earlier post and apologize for any error.
ROH star Kevin Steen and independent wrestler Willie Mack are expected to be offered WWE developmental contracts, according to a well placed source.
Powell's POV: I was told that ACH and Rocky Romero will not be getting offers at this time. Roderick Strong took part in the camp that included Steen and ACH, but there's no word yet as to whether the company intends to offer him a deal. As always, the talent must pass WWE medical testing before the deals will be made official.
