WWE just signed a very popular former MLB star and India star to a developmental contract.
Thee company announced today on their official website that they have signed 6’3”, 256-pound former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Rinku Singh.
“Take a look at where I came from,” Singh told WWE.com about signing with WWE. “When I started [baseball], there was nothing. Now we have 23 states [in India] playing baseball and softball. As I go through my journey at the Performance Center and WWE, it will continue to make things easier, and I’ll have millions of people in my corner. It’s going to be a fun journey.”
He scheduled to be in Florida starting training this Tuesday.
“As long I stay focused and stay strong, just as I have over the past 10 years with baseball or track and field … it will lead me in the right direction,” Singh said. “Obviously, it’s going to be a totally different training program [at the WWE Performance Center]. But it does not matter where you came from. You’re trying to be something bigger than yourself, and you’ve got to give it everything you’ve got.”
We can probably expect to see him NXT within a year, but you never know and they might push him to the main roster because he has such a following.
