It has been on the cards for a while but today it has been officially confirmed, by PWInsider that former ROH World Champion Adam Cole has signed with the WWE.

The 28 year old has signed for NXT and is set to begin work at the WWE Performance Centre this week.

Cole left ROH at the War of the Worlds PPV in New York back in May and has since only worked a small number of indie shows but as expected signed with the WWE today.

With NXT Takeover Brooklyn taking place this weekend you can certainly expect Cole to make an appearance in some shape, most likely giving the new guy wave to the cameras whilst sitting ringside and taking in what should be the start of a great new journey for the former Bullet Club member.
