On January 5, among other names that are already being used by performers, WWE filed to trademark Sha Samuels, who had been reported to be signing with WWE in NXT UK a few months ago, but we hadn’t yet had confirmation until now.
The full list of names that were filed for are as follows:
- Leon Ruff
- Sha Samuels
Samuels has wrestled for a whole host of promotions, mainly in the UK, and grew in popularity for his “Mug of the Week” weekly rant series on Twitter.
Previous reports indicated that he’d actually been offered a contract in January 2020 but it couldn’t be finalised due to injury.
