WWE introduced former Impact star Eli Drake on NXT this weekend, with the superstar now going as LA Knight.
He is one of the many signees that WWE has made in recent times, with Wrestling Observer Newsletter reporting on some other names that are scheduled to appear in WWE soon.
Indie star Blake Christian has penned a deal with the company recently. Taya Valkyrie, another former Impact star and John Morrison’s better half, will also make her debut in NXT soon. Harlem Bravado, one half of the Bravado Brothers, has also inked a deal with the company.
“So they got Blake Christian signed, Taya Valkyrie, Harlem Bravado they have like two dozen people signed, they’re on a signing spree.”
WWE is known to poach talents from the independent scene often, but have often failed to utilize them to their maximum potential. It remains to be seen if their latest acquisitions come good for them or not.
