WWE is continuing to sign top independent wrestlers.

It seems like every few weeks WWE has been announcing that they’ve signed a new talent from the independent wrestling scene. WWE recently announced the signings of names like former Ring of Honor World Champion Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Bobby Fish, Donovan Dijak, Lio Rush and Shayna Baszler.

Dave Meltzer noted in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the next major independent wrestler expected to sign with WWE is Fred Yehi.

For those that don’t know Yehi, he is best known for his time in EVOLVE and Full Impact Pro Wrestling (FIP). Yehi made his Evolve debut at Evolve 51 losing to Lio Rush. He is currently the FIP World Heavyweight Champion. At Evolve 61, Yehi lost a WWE Cruiserweight Classic qualifying match to T.J. Perkins, who would go onto win the tournament and eventually become the first WWE Cruiserweight Champion in the current era of the division.

Yehi will likely be placed in NXT, which Triple H overseas, once he signs with the sports entertainment company. In June 2012, WWE ceased operating Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), its developmental promotion in Tampa, Florida, and began running all of its developmental events and operations at Full Sail University under the WWE NXT banner.

While its primary purpose is to serve as a developmental division for WWE, the promotion has come to be viewed by wrestling writers and fans as its own distinct entity as it serves as a third brand complementing Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live.

Originally holding its shows primarily in Orlando, Florida, the promotion expanded its reach as time has gone on having embarked on national and international tours, being praised for its high quality of wrestling, and good storylines. On February 27, 2014, NXT held its first live two-hour special event called NXT Arrival. This also marked the first live in-ring program broadcast on the WWE Network.Eventually, WWE scheduled more live two-hour special events, which have since become a regular fixture on WWE Network. WWE has already taped television leading up to NXT Takeover: War Games, so it’s possible that they wait until the tapings after the event in late November to have him make his debut.
