Signs with WWE

AnnouncementHiredInterview0 Comments

Steen officially announces signing with WWE.

I went to the tryout camp and I got through it, and what made me stand out were the promos, where we basically had to sell ourselves verbally.

Steen returns to The Art of Wrestling to discuss business in wrestling and being a zoo enthusiast.
