There were some reports going around this weekend that California-based independent wrestler Uhaa Nation has signed a developmental deal with WWE.
Nation was one of the top standouts at a tryout camp held at the WWE Performance Center in September. Nation impressed company officials so much that WWE trainers flew to Reseda, California to watch his match at a Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) live event the following month.
Nation, who has been wrestling since 2009, is said to be “a very high priority for WWE.” Billed at 6-0 and 240 pounds, Nation is known both as a high-flyer and a power wrestler.
At this weekend’s Preston City Wrestling event from the UK, there was a lot of buzz that Nation has signed with WWE and will be heading to the Performance Center in Orlando soon. Nation defeated former WWE Superstar Chris Masters on the card to win the PCW Championship.
