According to Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens, former Australian Rugby League star Daniel Vidot has inked a development deal with WWE. The 28-year old rugby star had a WWE tryout earlier in 2015 and was even offered a 3-year deal by the company. However, Vidot said that he would sign that deal only after his rugby contract expires. Vidot took part in another tryout in October, 2017.

NXT Superstar Riddick Moss recently suffered a torn Achilles tendon, as per the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. It is speculated that the injury could sideline Moss for eight months. Moss was present at last week’s NXT tapings on crutches. Moss and his former tag team partner, Tino Sabatelli recently filmed a segment where the duo split up. Sabatelli has since had surgery for a torn pectoral and could also be out of action for eight months.
