The WWE been in the headlines for the wrong reasons this past week, with the organization coming in for major scrutiny following former Superstar CM Punk's explosive interview.
But while Vince McMahon, Triple H and co may be unhappy with one of their former wrestlers at present that hasn't stopped them from setting their sights on finding perhaps the next big WWE Superstar.
Reports this weekend suggest that top indie wrestler Uhaa Nation has signed a development contract with WWE after impressing those in charge in recent months.
The Californian wrestler was appearing at a Preston City Weestling event in the United Kingdom this weekend and it was there that rumors first surfaced that Nation had been offered, and signed, a deal with the WWE to join their Performance Center in the near future.

Arriving with experience
Nation is the current PCW title holder after defeating former WWE star Chris Masters and has clearly impressed those at the WWE looking to bring in some fresh talent to their roster.
Uhaa Nation has previously worked out for the WWE at a recent tryout and it looks like the title winning performance in England might have been enough to secure his path to the WWE.
It isn't clear how long Nation will be expected to spend at the Performance Center but as an experienced wrestler he, and the likes of Triple H, will be hoping that he can make the transition to the WWE smoothly and quickly.
