WWE announces the signing of Fergal Devitt


After it was initially reported in May, WWE today officially announced that they have signed 32 year old Fergal Devitt who wrestles under the name of Prince Devitt.

With his working visa sorted, Devitt has moved to Orlando, Florida, where he will be assigned to the Performance Center and NXT for the time being before moving up to the main roster.

“This is something I’ve been looking forward to since I was maybe four or five years old,” Devitt told WWE.com. “I grew up watching wrestling my whole life, so to get the chance to step in the ring that I’ve watched on TV so many times is a dream come true.”

The Irish-born wrestler is best known for working at New Japan Pro Wrestling, starting with the company back in 2006. He held the IWGP Junior Heavyweight title three times and the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Tam titles six times.
