He will train daily at WWE’s so-called Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, and compete as part of the roster of rookies on NXT, a feeder league for the main WWE roster.
It is believed that he will be stripped of the ominous “Undertaker” gimmick and repackaged as Cal Markaway, street-tough thug with a mysterious past.
“The kid shows potential,” said Terry Taylor, a trainer at the Performance Center, “but he’s rough around the edges. Hopefully he’ll be ready for the spotlight soon.”
Cal Markaway is expected to make his in-ring NXT debut next week as part of a dance-off against Summer Rae.
