WWE Signs UK Star to NXT Deal, Plans for Braun Strowman & Elias

Home / WWE Signs UK Star to NXT Deal, Plans for Braun Strowman & Elias

Plenty of talented United Kingdom wrestlers have competed for WWE in recent years. The likes of Tyler Bate, Trent Seven, Pete Dunne, and Mark Andrews have all competed in incredible matches in NXT lately. It looks like WWE will officially be adding another British wrestler to the NXT roster very soon. According to PWInsider, WWE has signed Danny Burch to an NXT contract. Burch had already been a member of the NXT roster but was released back in 2015. However, WWE apparently decided to bring Burch back last month, and the British grappler has finished up his independent wrestling dates. He gave a farewell address during last night’s Beyond Wrestling event and will now be back on NXT permanently.
Braun Strowman has truly managed to rise as a true main eventer in WWE over the past few months. In fact, the company just had Strowman win the 50-man Royal Rumble match in the main event of the Greatest Royal Rumble show in Saudi Arabia last week. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio show has reported that WWE has some major plans for “The Monster Among Men.” After losing a Steel Cage match and receiving another loss at the hands of Brock Lesnar recently, it was reported that Roman Reigns is likely finished as number one contender to the Universal Championship at the moment. However, it looks like Strowman may be next in line for the title.
One of the most surprising rising stars in WWE at the moment has got to be Raw Superstar Elias. “The Drifter” has managed to impress audiences with his weekly shtick, and it looks like he has become popular enough for WWE to develop some major plans around him. The latest Wrestling Observer Radio program claims that Elias is viewed as one day being a top star in WWE by several different officials in the company, but those officials are reportedly not impressed with some of his in-ring work. If Elias can improve on that and maintain the popularity that he has right now, then the belief is that he may very well be pushed as a true main event act in the company over the next few months.
