WWE.com announced today that former ROH and PWG world champion Kevin Steen is heading to Full Sail University and the NXT camp, for which he has been signed to a developmental contract.
The Canadian brawler has been a firm indy favourite and is highly respected by ROH diehards – he’s also a firm favourite of WWE Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin.
His surprisingly athletic (for a big guy) in-ring ability is what got Steen noticed, along with his mic skills – undoubtedly WWE had been watching him for a while.
August 25th is the official start date for Steen, so expect WWE training officials to adapt his style significantly before he makes his TV debut.
This exciting news, along with other recent high-profile signings, is fast ensuring NXT is the must-watch show on the WWE Network.
