Ring of Honor has in recent years been a major source of additions for WWE: CM Punk and Daniel Bryan are the best examples that can be cited. Recently, we have heard of the imminent arrival of Bobby Fish , who will come to strengthen the NXT squad, to which is added the potential of Adam Cole , one of the most relevant names on the current scene. And yesterday we heard of another ex-ROH who will be landing on the McMahon product next month, Donovan Dijak .
According to PWInsider , Dijak would arrive in August to join the Performance Center , after being informed by The New Age Insiders that the fighter has stopped accepting dates within the independent circuit, indicating that his signature with WWE would have occurred. Before, logically, Dijak will have to finalize his last commitments, like his participation in the battle of Los Angeles of PWG in the beginning of September ; So you should spend some time combining scenes without total exclusivity.

PWInsider reports that many NXT names will jump to Raw and SmackDown after the summer, and a new wave of hiring that reinforces the third brand in discord seems necessary . Let’s hope it does not happen the same as in 2016 with the vaunted Draft and witness another quality slump, bearing in mind that today the brand is recovering the pulse of yesteryear.
It is reported that there will be two additions added, the cited Adam Cole, and Lio Rush . These are a matter of time, and would even have been delayed by a legal matter with ROH, which now forces WWE to wait between 60 and 90 days to negotiate with their former employees, a clause that the product McMahon breached until then, when contacted These fighters being still under contract.
Last month, Mick Foley praised Dijak’s quality during a North East Wrestling event , ensuring he was prepared to work at the world’s largest wrestling company. Undoubtedly, the almost two meters and 120 kilos of gladiator fit the prototype of WWE , which is joined by its 30 springs that ensure many years of career ahead.
Dijak has only been a professional wrestler since his debut in ROH in July 2014, but his performances have attracted the attention of many, winning the Top Prospect Tournament of 2015 for that promotion. It’s true that he has not yet held any major titles, although in return, he has been measured by very relevant industry names, some of them current or former WWE Superstars: Matt Hardy , Cody Rhodes , AJ Styles , Jay Lethal , Marty Scurll , and a long etcetera.
