According to a report from respected wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, the WWE seem certain to add Roderick Strong to their ranks in the next few weeks.
Meltzer mentioned in the latest installment of Wrestling Observer radio, “it’s pretty clear that Roderick Strong is going to the WWE.”
Meltzer went on to add that it is bound to happen as Strong had his farewell matches in both Ring of Honor and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla recently.
You can even check out the man affectionately known as Mr. Ring of Honor saying his goodbyes to the ROH crowd last weekend.
Strong had been appearing in Ring of Honor since 2003, a run that last thirteen years. No wonder they love him there. During his time in ROH, Roddy won the World Championship once and the Television Championship twice.
The 33-year-old was also a star in PWG, where he managed to reinvent his character in recent years to becoming one of the most hated wrestlers in the history of the promotion, forming a new 'Mount Rushmore' with Super Dragon and The Young Bucks.
He should be incredible in NXT.
