WWE has signed Tommy Maclin of The Monster Factory, independent wrestler Brian Tannen, and Shane Taylor (former football player and independent worker) to developmental deals.

With WWE picking up new developmental workers, the feeling is that some of the other wrestlers who aren't where officials would like them to be might be cut as well in order to make room for the new talent. For example, Knuckles Madsen was released this past week. He was signed back in 2012 and had never been called up to the main roster.
