NXT Talent Says He's the First Australian Wrestler in WWE

During an interiew with The Herald Sun, WWE developmental talent Matt Silva made the following claim:

"I'll be the first Australian to compete in the WWE," Silva said. "I'm going in as a newbie, and just wait for a call up to the main roster before I start competing against those guys."

This is of course untrue, as Nathan Jones was Australian and previously competed in WWE.
