With ITV taping World Of Sport this past week in Norwich, WWE attempted to sign as many of the top United Kingdom stars as possible in recent weeks to both keep them from World of Sport and for their own expansion into the U.K. market with a U.K. specific brand and weekly television.
WWE kicks off its next phase on June 18th and 19th with the King of the Ring tournament at Royal Albert Hall in London.
As noted previously Toni Storm was key on the radar. Those who have supposedly been in talks for WWE’s new project are Storm, Joe Coffey, Zack Gibson, Dave Mastiff , El Ligero, Travis Banks, Chris Brookes, Jinny, and Eddie Dennis. There may even be more to come but these are the names that are being mentioned by many.
