– Mason Ryan, who debuted last night on RAW with Nexus, is reportedly signed to a five-year deal with WWE that he inked back in 2009.
The current FCW Heavyweight Champion is also a former UK Gladiator, where he competed under the name Goliath. It was reported recently that WWE officials had big plans for Mason and are looking for him to fill the big man role that Batista once had.
Carrie sent word that Ryan calls his finishing move The House of Pain in FCW.
A few wrestlers jokingly commented on Ryan’s debut on their Twitters:
FCW star Ken Li: “Big congrats to Mason Ryan!! Good seeing him on Raw!!”
Tyler Reks: “Big Barry, torture rack, break your back”
Zack Ryder: “What? Steve Blackman joined the Nexus tonight?”
Chris Jericho: “Interesting to see the debut of Batistwo tonight on Raw…”
