    I know I read it, and I believe its probably true.

    There was an article on here that said he doesnt want them signed because he has enough indy guys and not enough big guys.

    Well I wouldn’t put the blame on him entirely, we don’t know if he is the one who gave the green light to sign her or not, just because his on screen character has all the power doesn’t mean he has even close to that amount in real life. Now don’t get me wrong he im sure has a lot of influence over steering vince in the directions that he feels are the right ones, but until vince officially steps down as the head of wwe he will always have the final say on everything from what angles play out on tv to who receives a developmental deal with NXT. Although im sure he does and will have a great amount of influence regarding the American Wolves getting a developmental deal or not.

    Just when I thought triple h couldnt get any dumber he pulls this off, signs a fitness model instead of the american wolves, ha, must be nice to have his so called “logic”
