Former World of Sport and Love Island star Adam Maxted wasn’t at the camp but did sign with the company. Sha Samuels is expected to sign with the company as he was actually offered a WWE contract back in January the deal wasn’t complete due to him dealing with an injury at the time.

Aleah James was at the camp. The final two names mentioned to be at the camp are Scottish star Molly Spartan and Tony Gill.

Spartan is in a relationship with current NXT UK Tag Team Champion Wolfgang while Gill had previously worked as Gursinder Singh in Impact Wrestling.

It was noted that there was another prominent unnamed talent that has signed and is in attendance for the camp.
