WWE Reportedly Interested In Signing A Former UFC Star

– WWE was reportedly interested in former UFC star and now Evolve wrestler Matthew Riddle, but they have concerns with him that could cost him a contract with the company.

There are two issues. The first is that he’s had very few matches and just started training in late October. The second issue is that he has failed drug tests in the past for marijuana.

– WWE still hasn’t offered anyone from the most recent season of Tough Enough a developmental deal aside from the two winners and two-second place finishers at this point. There was talk of signing one of the bikini contest girls, but a decision was made against it.
