Twitter of Drake Younger

According to reports, independent wrestler Drake Younger has been signed by WWE.

The talent pool in WWE's developmental system has just gotten deeper.

According to a statement released All Pro Wrestling, Drake Younger has signed with WWE:

All Pro Wrestling is elated to announce that former APW World-Wide Internet Champion and current #1 Contender for the APW Universal Heavyweight Championship, Drake Younger was offered and has officially signed a contract with WWE.

Having wrestled all over the planet for the most credible organizations and outfits -- Drake Younger's lifelong journey has finally paid off. However, not before punching in for one last match in the Bay Area. Drake Younger will challenge Adam Thornstowe for the APW Universal Heavyweight Championship on Saturday March 15th at#BayshoreBash.

The 29 year old Younger is most known for his work in CZW, PWG, AIW, and IWA: Mid-South and has built his reputation through his insane hardcore work. This reputation has overshadowed his excellent capabilities in the ring overall and he will make for a great fit in WWE.

After the news broke, fellow independent wrestler (and rumored WWE target) Michael Elgin had this to say:

Cagesiders, are you as excited by this news as I am?
