Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that WWE has offered several of the talents involved in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic tournament contracts. According to the site, TJ Perkins (He portrayed the “Suicide” character in TNA for awhile), Cedric Alexander, Noam Dar and Akira Tozawa have all been offered WWE developmental/NXT deals. If all goes well (medical testing, physicals, etc.), they will report full-time to the company in September or October.
Also, Zack Sabre, Jr. was reportedly offered a contract with the company but didn’t sign it due to “a personal matter.” There is talk that he may sign with the company next year as the deal is still on the table.
As previously reported here on eWrestlingNews.com, Johnny Gargano and Tommasso Ciampa recently signed full-time deals with the company. They will report to the WWE Performance Center full-time after they finish up their indy bookings and go through WWE’s medical testing/physicals.
Kota Ibushi and Gran Metallik were also said to have signed deals. It should be noted that Ibushi said in a recent interview that he hasn’t officially signed a contract just yet.
We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
