WWE Signs College Wrestler, Talent Missing HOF, Ryder, Madusa
– WWE recently signed college wrestler Derek Foore, who we have wrote about in the past and who resembles a young Kurt Angle. Foore has a good athletic physique and was scouted by Gerald Brisco at last year’s NAIA Championships. Foore is moving from Ohio to Florida this coming week to begin work at WWE developmental.
– Every year there is a group of WWE talents who must miss the Hall of Fame ceremony due to Axxess autograph sessions. This year it will be Mick Foley, Wade Barrett, Drew McIntyre, Ted DiBiase, Brodus Clay with his dancers, Hornswoggle, Kane, Paul Bearer, R-Truth, Kaitlyn, AJ Lee, Teddy Long, Mason Ryan, Jinder Mahal and Layla who have to do Saturday night autograph sessions from 6-10pm.
– Zack Ryder and his fans managed to get “#GetRyderOnTeamTeddy” trending worldwide on Twitter today.
– As noted before, WWE is bringing Madusa into WrestleMania weekend, likely to do interviews for the WWE Network. WWE is looking to have one woman inducted into the Hall of Fame each year so it’s possible they could choose her for a future induction. Madusa had a ton of heat on her after trashing the Women’s Title on WCW Nitro years ago and back in 2001, she was considered off-limits to be signed by the company.
