More on WWE Offering Deals To Nearly 20 Indie Wrestlers, Ronda/UK
Thursday, May 17, 2018
It was previously reported that WWE has recently signed or offered contracts to around 20 indie wrestlers from the UK as another UK Championship Tournament will be taking place over the summer and WWE wants to put more focus on the UK Division. Some of the names include Toni Storm, Joe Coffey, Dave Mastiff, El Ligero, Travis Banks, Chris Brookes and Eddie Dennis.
It also appears that WWE is trying to sign as many UK indie wrestlers as they can as a way to compete with the ITV World of Sport Wrestling Promotion and to do their own projects. World of Sport recently taped 10 weeks of TV and should premiere in late July or August. The recent ITV tapings featured stars such as Grado, Moose, Will Ospreay, Joe Hendry, Martin Cooper and others, with former WWE Superstar Stu Bennett (Wade Barrett) as an announcer.
WWE is expected to make UK-related announcements, possibly a local TV deal, at the June 18th and June 19th WWE UK Title Tournament Events from Royal Albert Hall. ITV will air for at least 10 weeks and WWE is looking to get their own projects up & running to keep talents from going to work for ITV.
The current WWE European tour has featured several WWE UK Superstars. Last Tuesday night's episode of 205 Live included matches with Tyler Bate, Kenny Williams, Flash Morgan, James Drake and Joseph Conners.
WWE also announced this week that they are bringing Ronda Rousey to the UK later this summer for a match. Rousey, Roman Reigns,
and WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins have been announced for a special WWE Live Event from London, England at The O2 Arena on Wednesday, August 29th.
Speaking of Ronda Rousey being part of WWE's UK tour this coming summer, WWE has recently announced the official details regarding the UK in-ring debut of "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey, as seen below:
