Former UFC Champ Set to Wrestle, WWE NXT Prize Update

Nick Paglino

F4WOnline.com is reporting that the current plan going forward is that WWE has scrapped the idea of having the NXT season winner receive a main roster contract and only have the prize be a championship match. The feeling is that most of the NXT members eventually land on the main roster anyway, so giving them a contract as the prize for winning NXT seems a bit redundant.

Sherdog is reporting that former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia will make his pro wrestling debut in Japan later this month.
