NXT is the hottest show in wrestling right now, with the WWE developmental division putting on some of the best matches and storylines in the world.

NXT is complete with most of the biggest indy wrestling stars from around the globe - with the likes of Finn Balor, Hideo Itami, Apollo Crews and more all currently showcasing their talents at Full Sail.

And it seems like NXT and the WWE could well have a new star on their hands in the form of their latest signing.

Sombra Starring

WWE recently signed former CMLL and NJPW star La Sombra - real name Manuel Alfonso Andrade Oropeza - and he's now training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. It looks like the newbie is already turning heads.

According to a report from F4W Online, several sources have told them that Sombra is a real talent and the WWE have made an excellent new signing, with the 26-year-old being tipped to potentially be the company's next top latino star.

Big Future?

"He carries a lot of pride but he's good at what he does and some feel he could be the top Latin star that WWE is looking for. Sombra has potential to be a big crossover star in the United States and speaks English well," the report stated.

Becuase of Sombra's good looks and his ability to speak English well, it seems like the WWE will be making him wrestle without a mask on, which is a big boost for the young Mexican.

Hopefully, La Sombra can be the next Eddie Guerrero rather than the next Sin Cara. Vince McMahon, Triple H and the rest of the WWE will certainly be hoping so.
