Young, an 18-year veteran of the mat game and former heavyweight champion, shocked the Full Sail University crowd when he entered the arena, which will air on NXT in the coming weeks, only on WWE Network.
Cathy Kelley broke the news of Young’s debut on Facebook Live, and she will interview him in a WWE.com exclusive that will be available at 10 p.m.
Young’s arrival is the latest in a line of big-name free agents hoping to ply their craft in NXT, going to show that you never know who will appear next between the yellow ropes.
WWE has been on a major hiring spree, with Young following the likes of current NXT Champion Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, AJ Styles, Luke "Doc" Gallows, Karl Anderson, and Shinsuke Nakamura as top free agents signed by WWE. It is also believed that the signing of Young's fellow former TNA Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Rude, is emminent.
