We reported this morning here on eWrestlingNews.com that WWE has signed Olympic wrestler Chas Betts to a developmental deal. He will begin training at the WWE Performance Center today. Betts was a member of the 2012 US Olympic Greco Roman Wrestling team. He wrote on his Facebook:
"On Oct. 19th of last year, I asked Kristi to give me one year to attack and pursue a new dream after I retired from Greco-Roman Wrestling. It ended up taking two weeks longer than I asked for, but I think she'll forgive that — considering we've moved to sunny Orlando, FL just as the Minnesota winter was about to kick in.
I am proud to announce I have signed a contract with WWE and begin training tomorrow at the WWE Performance Center here in Florida. For those that have known me a long time, you know being a pro-wrestler has been a dream of mine since I was 11 or 12 years old. I'm honored and humbled by the opportunity. I am extremely lucky to have a wife and family that has supported me in every dream I've chosen to chase, however unlikely it may be. Never underestimate the power of a good support system, people!"
