According to PWInsider, WWE has signed Australian wrestlers Matty Wahlberg and Steph De Lander to NXT developmental contracts. Matty Wahlberg (real name Matt Farrelly) made his wrestling debut in 2017. He was trained Madison Eagles and Robbie Eagles, and had previously appeared on the Australian version of Survivor in 2019 and is considered one of the best wrestlers from the country. He announced that he was leaving PWA Black Label at their event titled “It Started Out With A Kiss” yesterday.
Steph De Lander also made her in-ring debut 2017 and was trained by Madison Eagles as well. She has been a part of PWA since the COVID-19 pandemic began but also previously appeared for Black Label Pro, IWA Mid-South and SHIMMER Women Athletes. De Lander did undergo a tryout session for NXT UK in 2019 but didn’t make the cut.
