Independent wrestler Steven Walters confirmed in an interview with The Chicago Fight Club that he was contacted by WWE for an upcoming Cruiserweight show being developed for the new WWE Network.

“I’ve been in contact back and forth from WWE about that Cruiserweight Show they’re going to be putting on the network soon. They’re looking for guys my size, around 200 pounds, like around five foot nine to six foot tall also. I’ve been going back and forth with them a few times about that. It wasn’t long after I did that extra spot for them in December. I got hit with a chair. I got a chance to talk to Laurinaitis a little bit. I got a one on one meeting with him. That was one of the things he approached me about. I talked to them about three to four weeks ago. They had to push the debut of it back to later this year around November or so.”
