The black-and-gold brand in WWE has added an additional talent and for the second time this week, it marks another EVOLVE Wrestling veteran signing with the global sports entertainment juggernaut to join the NXT roster.
Sportskeeda was first to report the news that former EVOLVE Wrestling star "Retro" Anthony Greene has signed a contract with WWE.
Greene -- much like Leon Ruff who signed with WWE from EVOLVE earlier this week as well -- will be headed to the black-and-gold brand in WWE NXT.
Additionally, it is being reported that former EVOLVE Wrestling star Curt Stallion may also be on the verge of signing a contract with WWE, however that signing has yet to be confirmed or announced by the company itself.
If he does sign, he will mark the third talent to sign with WWE from the EVOLVE Wrestling promotion specifically for the purpose of expanding the NXT roster.
Check out a video of a "Retro" Anthony Greene promo released by WWE below. The promo originally aired prior to EVOLVE's 131 event that streamed on the WWE Network.
