WWE has opted not to sign one former TNA talent.
That talent is Crazzy Steve, who decided to leave Impact Wrestling earlier this year once WWE reportedly showed interest in signing him. Steve ended up attending the WWE tryouts this past June.
Steve, whose real name is Steven Scott, is best known for his time in Impact Wrestling (formerly known as TNA Wrestling). He started his career in professional wrestling career in 2003. In April 2014, Scott made his TNA debut under his Crazzy Steve persona and became a part of Knux's The Menagerie stable. The group included The Freak and Rebel.
Fast forward to October of 2015, Steve returned to singles action and competed in the new TNA World Title Series tournament as a member of Group Wildcard, where he finished 4th in the group. His run as a singles star didn’t last long though. On the January 26, 2016, episode of Impact Wrestling, Steve, Abyss, and Rosemary attacked TNA World Tag Team Champions The Wolves and stole their titles.
This formed a new stable called Decay. Moving along to March 19, Decay defeated Beer Money, Inc. to win the TNA World Tag Team Championship, marking Steve's first and only TNA championship.
At the Bound for Glory PPV (pay-per-view) event of that same year, Decay lost the titles to The Broken Hardys. On April 20, 2017, he announced his departure from Impact Wrestling
Based on a recent report, it appears that WWE opted against the signing. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio this week that WWE ended up not signing him. He is now taking indy bookings.
This is a surprising move on WWE’s part. He has an interesting character and is a good worker in the ring. The belief was that he would be placed in NXT and if that was the case, some could make a reasonable argument that he would be a great fit in the group Sanity alongside former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, Sawyer Fulton and Nikki Cross. However, him joining the company was just not meant to be. It will be interesting to see if he decides to return to Impact.
