According to reports, WWE has signed two new wrestlers to their roster.

Wrestling Inc has reported that: "WWE has signed 22-year-old Alvin Abitz to a developmental deal, according to Casey of SquaredCircleSirens, who often reveals new signings. Albitz had a WWE Performance Center tryout back in May and is scheduled to report back to work for the company in October. The 6-foot-7 290-pound athlete from Georgia has an MMA record of 1-1-0.

"SCS also reports that WWE has signed 24-year-old collegiate wrestler Max Wessell to a deal. He's also scheduled to report to Orlando in October."

Wrestling Inc also said: "The news of Abitz signing was re-tweeted by Mark Henry while Wessell's signing was re-tweeted by WWE's Gerald Brisco." In case you don't know who Brisco is, he is a talent scout for the WWE.

It comes as no surprise that the company has signed new talent to their rosters, as with so much talent being brought up to the main shows over the past couple of months in the wake of the brand expansion, more superstars are needed to be replaced back down in NXT.

How and when new additions Abitz and Wessell will make their debuts in the WWE is still unclear, but their wrestling technique is clear to see thanks to the awards they have won in college. The company will be hoping they have the same success as previous college stars that have gone on to the WWE such as Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle

WWE are always looking for possible talents that could be future superstars, but sometimes their charisma and promo skills don't match up to what they can do in the ring. Work in the performance center from October onwards will probably be more focused on their promo skills than their in-ring work.
