According to, WWE cruiserweight Drew Gulak is said to have signed a full-time deal with WWE and he is expected to be finishing up his independent dates in the upcoming weeks.

In related news, WWE is said to be in “signing mode” right now, and is paying close attention to the independent scene. The company is reportedly working harder than ever to monitor independent talents, to the point that officials are watching iPPV events and compiling agents reports to track the progress of certain talents. This is very similar to what WWE does with its own talents to track live event progress.

Additionally, WWE has a new crop of recruits ready to report to the Performance Center on January 3rd. Names include Heidi Lovelace, Kimber Lee, Nixon Newell and Cheree Crowley (aka Evie) are all expected to be signed. The next WWE Performance Center tryout is currently scheduled for early February.
