I wonder if they'll keep him on NXT long-term, or just give him a few tapings to get how WWE works (production style wise) before moving him to the main roster. I'm almost hoping for the former, just so he doesn't become another guy lost in the shuffle.

Hopefully Joe gets to keep his name.

Here I am, telling people CM Punk was the last guy to use his indy name and that WWE wouldn't let anyone keep their indy name or real name.

Even KENTA was only KENTA for a couple of weeks.

It seems likely. She was ringside at TakeOver.

Some sites are reporting that Sarah Stock, Rich Swann, and Biff Busick have been scooped up by WWE today. Those are three great signings, particularly Busick.

It's official:
wrote:WWE® ANNOUNCES THE SIGNING OF KANA

STAMFORD, Conn., September 8, 2015 – WWE (NYSE: WWE) announced today the signing of international superstar Kanako Urai, aka Kana, to the NXT® division. Kana will officially report to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida in late September.

Over the course of her 11-year career, Kana has become one of the most exciting women ever to compete in Japan. She has appeared in many organizations throughout the country and has held multiple championships. Last month, Kana made a surprise appearance at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, sitting in the audience ringside next to WWE Hall of Famer “Nature Boy” Ric Flair®.

“We are very excited to have Kana join the NXT roster,” said Paul Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Creative and Live Events. “Her exciting in-ring style will make an immediate impact on the already impressive NXT women’s division.”

Big NXT debut, as reports are that....

[+] spoiler





















James Storm debuted, using his same name and gimmick.


From WWE.comFrom WWE.com
wrote: ORLANDO, Fla. — One night after the critically acclaimed TakeOver: Respect special on WWE Network, NXT has again made waves.

James Storm, an 18-year veteran and former heavyweight champion, made his unannounced debut at Thursday night's NXT TV tapings. He competed in a match that will air on NXT on Wednesday, Oct. 21, only on WWE Network.

The official NXT Twitter account broke the news of Storm’s presence in the NXT Arena at Full Sail University, and Triple H also tweeted about the appearance.
Good pick-up, if he sticks around. Hope it's not like Brian Kendrick, where he shows up for two tapings, gets the IWC to cream themselves, then disappears.

Just to follow-up on this one:

Sara Stock was hired as a developmental trainer. (Booo...) I'm not surprised, though - she's 36 and not KANA (who's 34). But, between, Sara Del Rey and Sara Stock, the Women's division (and the rest of development) is only going to get better.

Also, Rich Swann is 24?!
