Michael also noted that Timothy Thatcher was at the WWE Performance Center on Monday along with other new recruits, saying Thatcher had "allegedly" signed. 

Mike Johnson at PWInsider confirmed Thatcher has signed with the promotion. Johnson went on to report that Thatcher previously turned down overtures from the company, but William Regal and Canyon Ceman both had Thatcher "on their radar" in recent years.

Thatcher is a longtime veteran on the Independent scene, having worked for EVOLVE, MLW, PROGRESS, wXw and more. He is a former wXw Unified World Wrestling Champion, wXw World Tag Team Champion alongside current NXT UK Champion WALTER, and EVOLVE Champion.
