Former TNA Champion signs deal with WWE
Former TNA Champion Eric Young, 36, has signed a deal with NXT. The belief is that they are waiting for the right time to debut him as a full-time performer. Young lost a match to Samoa Joe several weeks ago but he was not signed yet.
Young was a steady hand in TNA. He was part of Team Canada with Bobby Roode during the early years of TNA and then he eventually transitioned into a comedy babyface character and eventually into a nasty heel towards his later years with the company.
Both Young and Roode left Impact Wrestling in March and reports surfaced later on about TNA having issues paying them.
NXT has shows coming up in Canada from 9/22 to 9/24 so it would make sense to feature Young on those shows. They will be in Toronto on 9/22, St. Catharines on 9/23 and Kitchener on 9/24.
