ROH WORLD CHAMPION TYLER BLACK
REPORTEDLY SIGNS WITH WWE
Is this true? Someone confirm this so I can calm my nerdves (nerd nerves).
I can't tell if I'm happy about this. I, like any other dude who writes about wrestling on the internet, is always happy to see an Indy star make it to the bigtime, be it for the money, the ability to perform on a huge stage, or both.
But he's also the ROH World Champion. And he was just finally converting those haters into believers with his fucking STELLAR match with Davey Richards at Death Before Dishonor VIII. Now, if this is indeed true, he's going to fall somewhere on this very official scale - the scale that measures how well an ROH wrestler was handled in the WWE:
C . M . P U N K
JR thinks it's a good signing, so that's good to hear. Always nice to have someone like Jim Ross backing you before you're even in the company (or before it's even been confirmed that you've signed).
If he does end up on WWE TV, it'll give me another reason to tune in and have someone to legitimately root for (like Punk, Bourne, and Danielson (before the darkest day in pro wrestling a.k.a. "the incident" a.k.a. the Assassination of Justin Roberts by the coward Daniel Bryan)).
