The WWE brand split is nearly two months old at this point and still it seems the WWE are looking for new signings.
When the roster was split in two, the company was always going to need to bring in new superstars to try and fill out the two sides - adding some depth to both shows.
That has worked somewhat well so far, with Rhyno being added to SmackDown and Jinder Mahal coming in as a jobber on Monday Night Raw. One former WWE star, however, has revealed he turned down a return.

Former WWE star Mike Knox took to his personal Twitter account yesterday to confim that he had rejected an approach from the WWE.
"As everybody also knows, WWE has been attempting to reach out to former WWE stars to help build the RAW and Smackdown Live dynasty," Knox wrote.
"Recently, I was approached by a man named Mark Carrano. He offered me a full-time deal to return to the RAW brand. I kindly declined."
Knox went on to state why he had turned down the role, claiming that at his age - being 38-years-old - that his body just wouldn't be able to keep up with the schedule.
"I'm 38 years old, my body isn't capable of being a full-time WWE wrestler anymore like it was back in 2006, 10 years ago."
Knox also added that he suffered another concussion recently and was advised to retire.
He then later admitted that he would return if offered a part-time deal.
"Since February 2016, I have been semiretired. If WWE decides to reconsider and offer me a part-time deal, I'd gladly accept it. I have no bad blood with WWE, I just can't physically compete full-time anymore."
