Update On “Silverback” Ryan Reeves and Chris Cage’s WWE Signings

Bill Behrens


As Nick Paglino noted earlier, f4wonline.com reported several “new” signings by WWE of guys from OVW…these are not, in two out of three cases, new signings rather they are re-signings as both “Silverback” Ryan Reeves & Chris Cage (Kristopher Pavone) were under previous WWE development deals and were released.

Cage was released from WWE in March 2005 for what were said to be disciplinary reasons. While in OVW he was an OVW Champion & teamed with the Miz.

Reeves was released from WWE in January 2007. Reeves release followed a wellness violation. Reeves appeared in Tough Enough 4, and was signed thereafter. He was 1st assigned to Deep South Wrestling then moved to OVW. In OVW he wrestled in single competition and teamed with Jo Bolan as High Dosage (questionable name at best).

So this is a second chance for both.
