NXT will be adding two new names to its roster.
Per PWInsider, Australian wrestlers Matty Wahlberg and Steph De Lander have signed with WWE and will be reporting to the black and yellow brand.
Wahlberg made his pro wrestling debut in 2017 after being trained by Madison and Robbie Eagles. He is also known for his involvement in the Australian version of Survivor in 2019. He announced his departure from PWA Black Label to the live audience after the promotions It Started With A Kiss Show went off the air on Friday, March 12, 2021.
De Lander also debuted in 2017 and shared Madison Eagles as a trainer. She has worked only two matches thus far in 2021, both being for PWA Black Label. Additionally, over the course of her career, De Lander has wrestled for Melbourne City Wrestling, SHIMMER, Venom Pro Wrestling, RISE Wrestling, and IWA Mid-South, among others.
