A pair of Olympic wrestlers in Henry Cejudo and Jeff Cobb could have both ended up in WWE NXT, but the former chose another combat-centered path.
Cejudo prepares to step into the cage at UFC 177 on August 30, going for his seventh straight MMA win. A recent interview points out that he considered choosing WWE developmental after leaving the amateur wrestling ranks. Cobb is set to take a step toward the opportunity that Cejudo turned away.
Other WWE NXT news features word from a recent show in Ft. Pierce, Florida, and Ring of Honor holding on tighter to its talents.
The ever-changing NXT roster has plucked big names from Japan and the independent circuit as of late. The company seemed to have a shot at adding Cejudo as well. Cobb could be WWE's consolation prize.
