Several top independent wrestlers expected to sign with WWE next month



WWE has the most stacked roster in their history and they are about to add more top independent names to their roster next month. Keith Lee, who has been rumored for several weeks as being WWE-bound, will be starting up with the company in July. Presumably, that means that he will start training at the Performance Center and we would likely not see him on television until after the NXT Takeover: Brooklyn show.

Lee would be joining Io Sirai and Deonna Purrazzo as the latest top independent stars joining the company in July. Also, the company will be adding rugby league star Daniel Vidot, gymnast Stacey Ervin Jr., and Rugby League player Luke Menzies.

As usual, all of these names will need to undergo the standard medical testing. In the case of Shirai, she would have signed last year but there was a heart issue that was spotted in the testing. She was later given full clearance by another doctor but she will need to undergo testing again from WWE's doctor.
