According to multiple sources within World Wrestling Entertainment, the company has signed reigning ROH World Champion Tyler Black to a contract.
It is believed that Black signed a developmental deal with WWE, but it has not been confirmed. He is expected to start with the company in September.
Black, who has been with Ring of Honor since 2007, has several title defenses scheduled next month. He will defend the ROH World Championship at the Glory by Honor Internet pay-per-view on Sept. 11 against Roderick Strong.
Black recently indicated on his Twitter account that he had some “decisions” to make, which sparked rumors that he would be joining WWE.
When contacted about the rumour, ROH owner Cary Silkin had no comment.
