From the WWE Rumor Mill: WWE looking to sign Rockstar Spud to the Cruiserweight Division
What's the story?
Mike Johnson of PWInsider has reported that Rockstar Spud (who Impact Wrestling released yesterday) has interest drawn interest from the WWE, and the plan would be to bring him into their Cruiserweight Division.
In case you didn't know...
Spud initially started with Impact Wrestling in 2013, winning their British Boot Camp reality competition, and was a regular with the company towards the end of the same year. His greatest achievements within the company include being a former two-time Impact X-Division Champion.
The heart of the matter
Considering Impact Wrestling is one of the bigger promotions after the WWE, the addition to Rockstar Spud to the Cruiserweight Division and 205 Live brings some additional name recognition to the company.
Impact trusted Spud to have a very high-profile feud in 2015 with Ethan Carter III, and it turned out to be one of the best feuds in the company that year. It ended in a very brutal hair vs. hair, no disqualification match that Carter won.
When Anthem took over early in 2017, Spud wasn't used as prominently, which probably prompted him to ask for his release. He was the manservant for Aron Rex (Damien Sandow) until Rex left the company, then transitioned into being the ring announcer when Jeremy Borash went to commentary.
There could be a no-compete clause that could keep him from signing with the WWE until early next year. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for further developments on what is next for Rockstar Spud.
Rockstar Spud might be short in stature, but he has the complete package in the ring and the microphone. I really hope this is true because I think a feud between him and Enzo Amore could be amazing.
The feud he had with EC3 was spectacular and it showed to me that he's a wrestler to be treated seriously in the wrestling industry.
