Big WWE News: Kevin Steen signed to developmental contract!

kevin-steen

Anybody who follows the independent wrestling scene, most notably ROH, will recognize the name of Kevin Steen. The Canadian-born wrestler is a fourteen-year veteran of the wrestling business, having held the ROH World Championship on one occasion, as well as a stint as ROH World Tag Team Champions with El Generico (who currently works as Sami Zayn in NXT) and Steen has held titles in PWG and CZW, as well. Now WWE.com has broke the news that WWE has signed the 30-year old to a developmental contract as Kevin Steen will be heading for the WWE Performance Center in Florida and will officially join the NXT roster on August 25.

The brash and unorthodox wrestler is just the latest ROH legend to be signed to WWE as the aforementioned El Generico was signed to a contract last year and was re-branded as Sami Zayn. WWE has also signed the likes of CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Low Ki (Kaval in WWE), Matt Sydal (Evan Bourne), KENTA, Sara Del Rey, Tyler Black (Seth Rollins), Cesaro (Claudio Castagnoli), and Chris Hero (Kassius Ohno) from ROH in recent years.
