WWE interested in signing top independent wrestler

WWE is looking to sign a notable wrestler who has made a name for himself on the independent wrestling scene and that’s “Speedball” Mike Bailey.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the company is trying to sign him and work out his Visa issues.

He was previously banned from entering the United States in 2016 because the Canadian-born wrestler tried to come to this country without a proper work Visa to work a booking he had with EVOLVE.

During this time, Combat Zone Wrestling was attempting to get Bailey his Visa, but it didn’t work out. The ban was for five years, but it just expired in March.

He found popularity when working for PWG where he worked with the likes of Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, Kenny Omega, the Young Bucks, and others. Due to his ban in the US, he has been working for promotions in Canada and Europe.
