In recent times, the WWE have excelled at bringing top talent from rival and independent promotions into the fold.
Almost simultaneously, they've also become increasingly strict when it comes to wrestler misdemeanours and issues away from the squared circle.
And, according to one report from The Wrestling Observer, via What Culture, it looks like the latter could be about to prevent the former - at least for a few months.

The article notes that the WWE are holding back on signing Quinn Ojinnaka - aka 'Moose' - to a deal with NXT because of an arrest dating back seven years to 2009.
The wrestler, who recently ended his run with Ring of Honor and had attracted interested from the likes of Lucha Underground, was arrested back in '09 on a simple battery charge after his wife accused him of throwing her on some stairs during an argument.
Although the arrest was seven years ago, it appears that the current climate in the WWE means that the powers that be are pushing back the potential signing to a later date.
"Normally this wouldn't be that big of a deal, since the incident in question was over seven years ago.
"However, with the recent bad publicity of Adam Rose and Jerry Lawler seeing jail time, they don't want to open themselves up for more scrutiny at the moment."
Pro Wrestling Illustrated's 2015 Rookie of the Year, 'Moose' certainly has the potential to be a success in NXT/WWE if, and when, he is given the opportunity.
However, with a $100,000-a-year contract reportedly on the table from TNA, it remains to be seen whether the ex-NFL player will be willing to hang around for his opportunity in WWE's development brand.
Hopefully, the deal still comes to fruition and the latest bump in the road is just the WWE being extra cautious considering recent events.
