Alex Zayne signs WWE deal, Rascalz update


In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer confirmed that Alex Zayne has signed a deal with WWE.

Last week, Zayne had what was billed as his final indie match, a loss to Tony Deppen at GCW's So Much Fun show. He has stayed active throughout the summer and fall, working for New Japan on Strong, GCW, and other indies.

The Kentucky native has worked consistently in the past few years and has appearances for both Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor under his belt. It's expected he will report to the WWE Performance Center as part of their next class along with another recent signee, Ben Carter.

Perhaps joining them will be Zachary Wentz and Trey Miguel of The Rascalz.

Reiterating what he discussed on Wednesday's Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer said the belief is the two are WWE bound as their Impact Wrestling deals recently expired. Team member Trey Miguel's deal also expired at the same time and Meltzer said he is drawing interest from both WWE and AEW.

Meltzer said the trio got offers from Impact that "weren't great". Their final match for the promotion is set for this Tuesday night's show.
