WWE CIRCLING FORMER ROH STAR FOR 2019

By Mike Johnson on 2018-11-20 11:22:00

As PWInsider.com has noted over the last week, there are a number of talents who appear to be WWE bound when the next WWE NXT class is announced this January.

PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources that WWE has strong interest in former Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling star ACH and it appears, pending all the usual processes one has to go through while signing with the company, that he will be Orlando-bound to join the NXT brand this January. 

On a national level, ACH has most recently been seen in Major League Wrestling, where he had been teaming with Rich Swann.  ACH, 30 years old, broke into the business in the Texas independent scene, being trained by Jerry Reyes and Scott Summers.    He had a six year run in Ring of Honor, departing in 2016 and has worked for Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan as well as New Japan as himself and the masked Tiger the Dark.  He's also worked in Mexico and for Impact Wrestling and is a hell of an aerial talent who's overall work and promos have greatly improved every year he's been around the business.

PWInsider.com can also confirm that Ring of Honor had been in discussions with ACH to return to the company in recent  but those talks ended without a deal being consumated.
