WWE: Identity Revealed of the New Nexus Member on Tonight's Monday Night RAW

Christopher DunfeeContributor IIDecember 12, 2016

Tonight, an unidentified man interrupted the main event between C.M. Punk and John Cena on WWE Monday Night RAW, and it appeared as if he might be against "The Straight Edge Superstar," when in reality, he was just another new member to the "Straight Edge"-led Nexus.

Force Of Wrestling is reporting the identity of the new superstar is none other than former FCW Florida heavyweight champion Mason Ryan.

Mason Ryan competed in World Wrestling Entertainment's developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling, and has been recently working at WWE live event house shows, as well dark matches for "The Worldwide Leader in Sports Entertainment" in recent weeks.

Ryan also worked during WWE's United Kingdom tour late last year.

It had been anticipated for weeks now that Ryan, who many compare to "The Animal" Batista and "The Freak" Rob Terry from Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, would debut in the World Wrestling Entertainment, but plans for his eventual arrival were unknown.

The native of Wales also formerly competed on the United Kingdom's edition of Gladiators, much like TNA Wrestling performer Magnus, prior to venturing into sports entertainment in 2006.

Ryan was signed to a developmental deal by WWE in 2009, after a three-year stint on the independent professional wrestling circuit in Europe.

After Wade Barrett introduced Ezekiel Jackson to his faction during last week's edition of Friday Night SmackDown!, it appears as if C.M. Punk had to outdo the former leader of The Nexus, with the new addition of Mason Ryan to The "New" Nexus.
