Thomas, previously known as "Shotgun" Brock Barker on the Canadian independent wrestling scene, is a graduate of Lance Storm's professional wrestling academy in Calgary, Alberta. He signed a developmental contract with WWE earlier this year following a tryout.
Meanwhile, Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine has been added to their roster under the name Kevin Hackman as we reported earlier. Photos of Leavine holding the Tough Enough Championship are enclosed but no mention is made of the Florida native winning the reality television series.
Leavine has been training at their Tampa facility since June, during which he was reportedly suspended for a violation of WWE's Talent Wellness Program. He has since returned to action.
