WWE has signed Drew Galloway from the U.K. to a developmental contract after he did a tryout while WWE was overseas last month. He will be reporting to Ohio Valley Wrestling in a few months. He’s 21 years old (soon to be 22), 6 foot 6 and 250 pounds.
Sheamus O’Shaunessy and Hade Vansen from the U.K. were also given developmental deals after recent tryouts. O’Shaunessy has the kind of bodybuilder look that WWE likes as he is 6 foot 6 and 280 pounds. WWE is still looking to open a full-time European territory, so they have told the U.K. wrestlers they are interested in to get ready for that. A half-dozen other names have come up, but their signings haven’t been confirmed.
WWE announced today that Sunday’s scheduled WWE house show in Kingston, Ontario, Canada has been cancelled.
