It's always incredibly exciting for the WWE Universe when WWE announces new signings - and the Performance Center has welcomed nine more of them over the past 24 hours!

The previous handful of intakes have seen stars such as Matt Riddle, Mia Yim, KUSHIDA, Shane Strickland - now Isaiah Scott, Rachael Ellering - now Evers, ACH and Punishment Martinez - now Damian Priest, as well as a seven-foot-three basketball player, two football players and "The Samoan Ghost" - so the newest intake has a lot to live up to!

But we don't think that's something they'll have a problem with.

These nine Superstars we're going to introduce you to may technically be about to begin life as WWE Superstars by training at WWE's high-class facility, the Performance Center, in preparation for life in the squared circle as a touring WWE Superstar.

All nine will debut on NXT initially, and the class includes a former Impact Wrestling star, a basketball player, a bodybuilder, a footballer and an aspiring musician who toured with Soulja Boy!

So, who are they? Sportskeeda has you covered. Here's some need-to-know information on WWE's newest recruits.
