DONOVAN DIJAK HEADED TO WWE BY DAVE MELTZER | @davemeltzerwon | JUL 20, 2017 9:48 AM
Chris "Donovan" Dijak, who was one of a group of wrestlers that included Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly, that WWE pulled contract offers from after legal threats from ROH back in January, is headed to WWE like the aforementioned pair.
Dijak said on the New Age Insiders podcast that he will be finishing up his independent bookings and has since listed that various shows over the next month will be his final events working with different promotions.
Dijak, 30, was a small college football and basketball star at Division III Bridgewater State College, who because of his size, at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, and agility, was quickly picked up by ROH and won their Top Prospect tournament.
After getting WWE offers, he opted not to sign a new ROH deal in February, and his career has been on hold since, waiting for WWE's time frame on offering him a deal.
NEW WWE SIGNING ANNOUNCED By Mike Johnson on 2017-09-05 16:04:00 Wrestling Entertainment officially announced the signing of Donovan Dijak today. He is down at the WWE Performance Center training already.
Dijak, a former Ring of Honor star from the New England area, had been expected to sign several months ago but his signing ended up delayed.
