While Tyler Black might not have made his debut during tonight's WWE Monday Night RAW telecast, it appears that another developmental talent did.
One of the most basic concepts in professional wrestling, done most famously with “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels and his bodyguard Diesel in the mid-'90s, is the idea of a small, cocky, young performer with a big competitor by his side for protection.
Tonight, during a bout between The Hart Dynasty members, Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith, featured a new bodyguard alongside Kidd. Following their match, the unidentified monster attacked Smith, leaving him laying in the ring.
The identity of the new bodyguard, is said to be Florida Championship Wrestling developmental talent, Jackson Andrews. Andrews is billed 7’0″ tall and 325 lbs.
Andrews has recently been competing at live event house shows for World Wrestling Entertainment over this past week and there was some chatter that Jackson could possibly be making his way to the active roster very shortly. Andrews has mostly competed with veteran Monday Night RAW superstar Goldust and Friday night SmackDown superstar JTG.
Andrews seems to have the build that “The Worldwide Leader in Sports Entertainment” is extremely high on, and seems to have a fair amount of potential talking to, sources close to the situation. Some inside the promotion compare him to former WWE superstar, and current Total Nonstop Action Wrestling performer, “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan.
It seems like this addition to the roster could finally help spark a feud between the former WWE World Tag Team champions, and help add some intrigue to the rivalry.
