    Which new signing are you looking forward to most?

    Over the last month, the WWE have made three pretty big signings from the world of independent wrestling, all of which have made headline news on WWE.com in a way like no previous NXT superstars have.


    On July 12th, Pro Wrestling NOAH's biggest star KENTA signed a developmental contract with WWE during a live event in Osaka. A video was released not long after with KENTA's first interview for WWE where former Japanese superstar Funaki was translating for him, it remains to be seen if that's a permanent pairing.



    On July 28th, Prince Devitt, famous for his stint in New Japan Pro Wrestling's Junior division, signed a developmental contract with WWE. During an interview with Renee Young, Devitt teased that his love of face paint might surface in WWE one day.


    On August 12th, one of the biggest names in the American Independent Wrestling scene, Kevin Steen, signed a developmental contract with WWE. During an interview with WWE.com, Steen confirmed he was a Zoo Enthusiast, Zoo Keeper gimmick imminent.

    They're all talented guys with potential to succeed and make it to the main roster, my question to you is, which signing excites you the most?

    I'm pulling for all three. Of the three, I'm most excited about Kenta since he was one of the young lions I was really digging for a long time before I stopped keeping up with puro on a regular basis and of the three, he will have the hardest time actually succeeding seeing now the E has never been keen on oriental wrestlers.

    Most excited about Steen, simply because I've been watching him for longer and know how unlikely this has been for him at times.

    Even when he tries to dress in a suit Devitt can quite get it right.

    Voted for Steen. I think all 3 have potential to do well, but not only do I like Steen the most but I think he has the best chance of making a significant impact. Maybe not main event material but certainly a solid entertaining mid-card fixture for years. I think it'll be most interesting to see how he adapts to WWE out of the three, and how his personality gets over when he's outside of a smaller, indy environment where the focus is on playing to live crowds rather than cameras.

    I'm never one to have high hopes with these kind of signings but I could really see Steen becoming main event in a few years.

    Steen is my favourite current wrestler so the choice was very easy.

    Gotta' go with Steen here, he's not only my fave of the bunch but has so much potential to succeed in WWE. Plus, as the Postman mentioned above, his signing (and picture with HHH) is still so surreal to me that there's that element to it as well.

    I believe all three of them have the potential, but I've seen how Steen jumps at an opportunity and takes full advantage of it, given or earned.

    Going with Steen because he seems something different who could well get over. I've seen him wrestle live unlike the others and thought he was an entertaining spectacle. Hopefully he can make an impact.


    I've been accused of being a lot of things, inarticulate ain't one of them

    Steen by a distance. The others are cool signings still though, but I'm so fucking pumped to see Steen do well and make it. Cornette can suck it.

    Going to echo that general consensus and say Steen as well.

    Man in such a short time top three talents getting signed by the WWE it's a beautiful sight to see. I honestly couldn't choose a person who I want to look forward to more, considering I'm excited for the futures of all three men.

    Way more interested in saying Devitt. Although I am curious to seeing how they use Steen.

    It will be extremely interesting to see how they use all three, but I have to say I'm most interested in Steen as well.

    Excited for all three but has to be KENTA, if they're going to pair him with Funaki as a translator or whatever, he could be pretty awesome as just a cold, silent asskicker who just tears through people. KENTA vs Brock or Sheamus would be
