Alex Zayne is reportedly signing with WWE, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. “Most have believed this to be the case, but we were confirmed to that Alex Zayne has signed with WWE which is why he’s leaving the indies,” Meltzer wrote. He went on to praise Zayne, but he also argues that he could have used more time on the independent scene.
“Zayne is really spectacular and was one of the best guys on the indies,” wrote Meltzer. “He probably could have used another year there and hopefully he doesn’t get stockpiled. My sense of him was that he had great potential but he wasn’t as ready as Jake Atlas, who is getting TV time but I don’t think has ever come across close to what he was when he had more freedom. But given the state of everything, the impetus to sign an offer early from WWE or AEW is there with so many fewer indies running.”
