    Default WWE Signs All-American Wrestler

    "PWInsider is reporting that WWE has signed Clayton Jack, an NCAA All-American wrestler from Oregon State University to a three year developmental deal.

    Jack was scouted last year by Gerald Brisco and at the time he was offered a deal after attending a tryout in Tampa. Jack however turned that deal down at the time to finish his education. Now that Jack is done, he is accepting the standing offer.

    The website for the University's wrestling team announced the signing and featured quotes from Jack."

    The guy seems semi-knowledgeable about the business, has an amateur background, decent look, and good size.

    Thoughts?

    They don't even know how to use the All-American American they currently have, do they really need another All-American.

    If he gets signed. He should keep his real name as a ring name. Clayton Jack sounds real badass. Or at worse, call him "Billy Jack Clayton."

    "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honor him and make whatever the man did live forever."

    I still don't see why they don't sign Jordan Burroughs from last year's Olympics. Takes the piss out of Angle so that he can't legally call himself "Professional Wrestling's Only Olympic Gold Medalist," and he has a built-in catchphrase. "All I see is Gold."

    I'd be interested in more shoot style wrestlers/characters in the WWE. Clayton Jack is pretty damn good. Oregan State has one of the best wrestling programs in the country, so of course he's got the chops.



    Would love to see WWE bring in more guys like this, maybe Kyle Dake. He's not real big but he's a fucking amazing grappler. Three time NCAA champion at three different weight classes. He wrestled a match against David Taylor from Penn State and the event drew a crowd of 3,376. That's a really big crowd for a college wrestling match. They were a hot crowd too from the reports I've read.



    Pretty good sign that WWE is still interested in real wrestlers.

    Yeah seeing that Brock Lesnar years later is still one of the biggest stars since the ending of the Attitude Era I don't know why the trend didn't continue. Kurt Angle was a solid hand too, but is only gone because the company doesn't want another Benoit situation with America's Gold Medal athlete. That would be a PR nightmare although if anything still happens the wwe is still going to be on the hook since that is where his biggest fame came from in the media's eyes.

    The signing of models in the divas divsion must be awakening some eyes that the company needs people who are really into actual wrestling.
    Who is the boss? Who made wrestling? Who is sports entertainment?
