Daniel Vidot

Newshub New Zealand is reporting former National Rugby Player Daniel Vidot has signed a multi-year developmental deal with WWE.

Triple H offered the following comments to Newshub about Vidot:

“You look at a guy like Daniel Vidot, who is coming to us very soon – he is coming out of a rugby [league] environment, he has a larger than life personality and is use to that physicality and daily grind – but they love it. It’s a perfect fit.”

Vidot had previously agreed to a deal with WWE in 2015, but the working relationship was short-lived as he returned to rugby.
