Rob McNichol has a story on Tyler Black signing with WWE. Black, 24, says he was renegotiating with ROH but Evan Bourne convinced him to sign here and that he also turned down an offer from TNA.
Black added, “To be honest, and no disrespect meant, but it wasn’t a hard decision to make. You have to want to test yourself against the best and WWE is the pinnacle of our industry. They were actually the last to make me an offer. I was renegotiating with ROH and TNA had made an offer, but when WWE came in it was no contest. I understand that I may have to sacrifice a little artistic integrity — and I don’t know if I’ll have to change my name — but I’m so excited about the challenge that lies ahead.”
Black finished up with ROH this past weekend dropping the heavyweight title to Rodrick Strong. He will report to WWE developmental in Tampa later this week.
