The news broke a while back that that indy wrestling marvel Kevin Steen was signed to World Wrestling Entertainment and will make his debut in the NXT division of the company soon. Steen is the latest big-name talent signing to come to WWE, as he is a versatile in-ring performer, a magnetic talker and just a unique all-around talent. Hopefully, this is a sign of WWE‘s dedication to building new stars regardless if they fit the typical Superstar mold, especially after the recent signings of Fergal Devitt and Kenta (in a sense, CM Punk — along with Daniel Bryan — DID change things). The Quebec, Canada, native has been wrestling for over a decade, beginning his career wrestling at flea markets outside of Montreal back in 2000, and has since become one of the most popular indy wrestlers and one of the most successful stars of Ring of Honor (which was helped since he held their world title for nearly a year). But my words won’t do this guy justice, so here are a few videos to showcase the prowess of Kevin Steen, and hopefully what we can anticipate during is WWE tenure.
