The worlds of the WWE and NXT just got infused with even more talent.
Ranging from indie scene veterans to the rawest athletic prospects, the WWE officially announced today (Oct 18) the addition of seven new members to Performance Center’s roster. All seven wrestlers reported to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida this week.
Check out all seven of the WWE’s new free agent signings below.
- Matt Riddle
- Mia Yim
- Chelsea Green
- Punishment Martinez
- Humberto Carrillo
- Daniel Vidot
- Jordan Omogbehin
A former UFC fighter and EVOLVE Wrestling champion, Riddle’s name stands out as the biggest addition. Yim is a familiar face, competing in the 2017 and 2018 editions of the Mae Yong Classic, and the WWE made her signing official in a video with Triple H released last night.
Green was a contestant on the 2015 version of WWE’s Tough Enough and then honed her craft with Impact Wrestling from 2016-2018. A three year veteran of Ring Honor, Martinez captured the promotion’s TV title earlier in 2018 and held the belt for over 100 days.
Already a ten year pro at 26-years-old, Carrillo is a luchador and comes from the famed Garza family of Mexican wrestling. Both Vidot and Omogbehin come from sports backgrounds. The six-foot-two, 230-pound Vidot is an Australian rugby player while seven-foot-three, 370-pound Omogbehin played college basketball for the University of South Florida and Morgan State University.
