El Generico officially signs with WWE

Rami Sebei, best known as El Generico, passed his physicals and has signed a developmental contract with WWE.

He will start in Tampa in February.  Generico has been one of the top wrestlers on the independent scene for years, headlining major shows this past year with ROH and the Japanese DDT promotion.

WWE has been interested in him since June, but the hold-up was the TNA lawsuit against WWE since Generico had worked two dark matches with TNA and thus would not sign anyone until the lawsuit was in the process of being settled.
