After learning the ropes of professional wrestling in the WWE’s developmental league, NXT, a plucky young rookie with a can-do attitude was “called up” to the main roster on Raw this week.
Rhyno, a 21-year-old upstart chasing his dreams of wrestling stardom, has spent the past year working hard at the WWE Performance Center in Florida, hoping to get noticed.
His life-long dream came true this week when he was invited to participate in a 32-man tag team match during the opening segment on Raw, alongside fellow rookies The Dudley Boyz.
Rhyno put on an admirable performance, but was clearly outshone in the match by seasoned ring veterans such as Braun Strowman.
Backstages sources report that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is hoping to repackage the rookie with the name “Hyppo.”
