WWE.com reported earlier that the organization has come to contractual agreements with the hot indie prospect, Kevin Steen.
Steen is said to report to the WWE performance center on the 25th of August.
This photo had surfaced earlier and the WWE has confirmed its authenticity.
“WWE has signed Canadian Superstar, Kevin Steen to its NXT division. The burly, outspoken, Package Piledriving Quebec Native, who bolts around the ring with equal parts grace and bad intentions, thrives on throwing fists and talking trash.”
In the interview with the WWE, the organization touched on how Steen feels about his physical looks and how they don’t resemble that of the average WWE Superstar, this is how Kevin responded to the inquiry;
“I actually didn’t, and that might be hard to believe for a lot of people. I’ve encountered a lot of people in my career that didn’t think I’d ever make it to the WWE, but I’m actually really proud to be an exception, which is pretty much what I’ve been for my entire career, everywhere I’ve went. I’ve never been the norm and I take great pride in that, but I never doubted I would get there eventually.”
Steen will follow in the footsteps of many of the top WWE talent today.
Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Cesaro and others including the recently retired CM Punk all came from Ring of Honor and have enjoyed success in the WWE.
Steen will be reunited with his long time rival, El-Generico (Sammy Zeyn) in the NXT and we can all only hope that they add to their memorable matches in the near future.
