Officially confirming what has been known about for a while, WWE announced today that Donovan Dijak has signed with the company and has arrived at the Performance Center.
WWE touted the signing with a post on their website, focusing on Dijak’s pro wrestling career from the New England indies to working for promotions like Ring of Honor, EVOLVE, and PWG. The article also mentions Dijak having been a standout football and basketball player in high school and college.
Dave Meltzer reported in July that Dijak would soon be heading to WWE. Dijak has been wrapping up his dates on the independent scene since. His final match on the indies took place at PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles on Sunday night, with Meltzer raving about it in his report from the event and on last night’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio.
Dijak is following in the footsteps of Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, Adam Cole, and Lio Rush as former ROH wrestlers who have made their way to WWE this year.
