WWE Reportedly Beat AEW For Viper, NXT UK Star Pulled, Rowan News

Home / WWE Reportedly Beat AEW For Viper, NXT UK Star Pulled, Rowan News

All Elite Wrestling is real and it is set to make a huge impact in
the wrestling landscape this year. The new promotion announced during
their Double or Nothing rally yesterday that several stars, such as SCU,
Joey Janela, PAC, Chris Jericho, and others have signed deals with the
promotion. Of course, the members of The Elite are working for AEW as
well. With the help of the Khan family, AEW has been able to sign talent
to lucrative contracts that pay well and treat them greatly. However,
it looks like All Elite Wrestling was not able to sign UK women’s
wrestler Viper, who some fans may remember from her Mae Young Classic
2017 appearances as Piper Niven. On Wrestling Observer Radio, it was
noted that Viper decided to turn down AEW’s offer in favor of signing
with WWE.
WWE recently did what some wrestling fans feared that they would when WWE initially attempted to expand the NXT brand into the United Kingdom: sign a number of the roster members involved to exclusive contracts. Tons of independent promotions are no longer ‘greenlit’ for the NXT UK Superstars to wrestle on, and the trend continues with Wrestle Gate Pro’s Open Gate show. NXT UK’s Jordan Devlin had been booked for one of their shows on January 26th, but the UK promotion just confirmed that Devlin has been pulled and will no longer be appearing on their show. As a result, Jake McCluskey will be facing Chris Ridgeway during the show instead. Devlin may also be getting himself ready for this weekend’s NXT UK Takeover: Blackpool event.

Due to circumstance beyond our control, Jordan Devlin has been withdrawn from Open Gate on Jan 26th by the WWE.
Jake McCluskey will now be facing Hard As F*ck Chris Ridgeway in the Main Event Of the Evening.

Rowan was experiencing a good amount of success in WWE throughout 2018 prior to receiving a brutal injury that has caused him to take time off to recover. As part of The Bludgeon Brothers will Harper, they won the SmackDown Tag Team Championships and held on to them for months before The New Day finally dethroned them for their titles. Fortunately, PWInsider says that Rowan has been spotted training in the WWE Performance Center and is still hoping to receive medical clearance from WWE’s team of doctors before he can come back to the ring and wrestle once again. This would seem to indicate that he’s on his way back to the ring, and with the Royal Rumble coming up on the 27th, one would think that he has the perfect place to make his return.
