– Top independent wrestler Sami Callihan has been pulled from Big Japan Pro Wrestling’s Strong Style Tournament later this month because he is apparently about to sign with WWE. We noted last week that Callihan was going through the pre-signing medical tests for WWE.
– WWE NXT star Judas Devlin is apparently the new second member of The Ascension with Conor O’Brian. The two teamed up at a NXT live event last week to defeat Alexander Rusev and Aiden English. O’Brian and Devlin used the same double team finisher that O’Brian and Kenneth Cameron used to use before Cameron was released from WWE.
