Mike Johnson is reporting that WWE has signed former OVW talent Shawn Spears to a new developmental deal. Spears took part in a tryout a few months ago in Tampa, Florida and returned to developmental last week. Spears was first signed to WWE back in 2002 and was part of WWE’s then developmental territory, OVW, until 2008 when he brought up to the main roster as part of the ECW brand. Spears had his first name changed from Shawn to Gavin and only spent a few months on the ECW brand before being released by WWE in late 2008.
