WWE sign Oregon State’s Clayton Jack:
WWE have signed Oregon State NCAA All-American wrestler Clayton Jack to a 3 year developmental contract.
The heavyweight amateur star was scouted by Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco, as part of his duties to find legitimate athletes to cross-over in to pro wrestling.
Jack was originally approached last year after a tryout in Tampa, but chose to finish his schooling first.
Jim Ross wrote on his blog:
“He’s a big kid with a wonderful, outgoing, positive personality who has the chance to be a top hand if he is willing to put in the time and work to make it happen of which I think that he will. As a rule, hard work doesn’t scare off amateur wrestlers especially those with collegiate experience. Clayton returned to the Beavers to finish his college degree which I personably feel is imperative to have for any one wanting to join WWE’s Developmental Program. Because more prospects are going to not make it than are, having something to fall back on lessens the pressure somewhat on some of the youngsters in my view.”

Jim Ross commented on his blog:
“Sorry to see @evemarietorres depart WWE but she’s happily married to a Gracie of the legendary MMA Gracie family and will be entering into the family business as an instructor while building her own body of work in that field. Eve is a lovely young lady who is extremely athletic. She was raised right and was never an issue while in WWE as best that I know. I wish her well.”
