Future WWE Signing Revealed?

Future WWE Signing Revealed? WWE

Shortly after the revamp of NXT into NXT 2.0 back in September 2021, WWE opened up their ‘Next In Line’ program.

The program was made as a way to get college athletes a path into the WWE should they choose not to persue their career path.

Several WWE NIL athletes have already signed on, with some even appearing on NXT television, such as Tank Ledger, who recently lost his teeth in a tag team match on this week’s episode of the show.

On May 9, the Saskatchewan Raiders signed defensive linesman KeShaun Moore, who is one of the WWE NIL athletes.

Moore recently spoke to CTV News, where he discussed his connection with WWE, saying that he will ‘most likely’ be stepping into the ring when his career is over.

He said:

“They [WWE] reached out to me about a year ago, and it’s been a good partnership with them during this time. I’ve never wrestled in my life, but yeah, I have that going on as well as football. A lot of the superstars that have come from the past two, three decades who wrestled were big-time superstars who were playing collegiate sports.

“When my playing days are over, I most likely will be stepping in the ring. But right now, I’m 24. I still got the itch to play ball. I’m definitely going to play football as long as I can for sure. I’ve gone to SummerSlam, Royal Rumble, and I get ringside tickets when I go to events. They’re super awesome to talk to, I can reach out when I have a question about everything. They’re basically saying the doors always open for me to step into the ring whenever I decide to take that step.”

Here’s a rundown of what happened on the May 9 episode of NXT:

Tiffany Stratton def. Gigi Dolin in the NXT Women’s Championship tournament

Mark Coffey & Wolfgang def. The Dyad to retain the NXT Tag Team Championship after distractions on the outside including a brawl between Ava and Ivy Nile
