The WWE has a long tradition of taking indy wrestlers and moulding them into Superstars of the main roster.
And, with NXT continuing to develop into the ideal environment to help wrestlers reach the next level, it looks like the organization have found their next recruit from the independent scene.
A video, showing Biff Busick saying goodbye to his current employers, Beyond Wrestling, is doing the rounds today. And its contents certainly suggest the 29-year-old's rumored career in WWE may be beginning sooner rather than later.

Busick, a Boston, Massechuttets native, was reported to have signed a development deal with the WWE at the start of this month. The video, then, appears to confirm those rumors.
Debuting way back in 2007, it wasn't until 2012 that he began work with Combat Zone Wrestling. Since then, Busick has appeared in shows for Evolve and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla amongst other independent promotions.
He has something of a throwback style of wrestling, with grappling and striking more prevalent in his matches than the high-flying moves that many of the up and coming WWE talent is known for.
Since rumors of his opportunity with WWE began, there have been comparisons to current main roster Superstar, Cesaro.
NXT fans, who will get the first glimpse of Busick once he officially arrives at the company next month, will be delighted if he can show himself to be half as talented as the popular Swiss wrestler.
