Karl Fredericks could be WWE-bound.

PWInsider is reporting that former New Japan Pro Wrestling star Karl Fredericks was seen today at the Performance Center in Orlando.

Fredericks became a free agent after August 1st after declining not to re-sign with New Japan. His statement last month stated:

"As of today August 1st I am no longer under contract with New Japan Pro Wrestling and I will not be re-signing with the company at this time. Though there is disappointment in the ending of this chapter I am grateful for the last four years traveling the world and growing with my best friends. I want to say thank you to the company for the opportunities and especially thank you to Shibata-San for believing in me and bringing me along his journey with the LA Dojo. Last but not least thank you to my fans and thank you to the NJPW fans for Your support over these years. I hope You will continue to support me along my path wherever that may lead."
