Every Wrestler Signed By Wrestling Promotions In 2019

21. Sam Shaw (WWE)

Impact Wrestling/WWE

Longtime TNA trainee Sam Shaw joined ACH as part of February's intake of NXT matriculants.

After his unfortunately named Lupus persona failed to go viral in TNA, Shaw participated and ultimately prevailed in the company's monthly 'Gut Check' competition. Though a win stipulated a TNA contract, Shaw was actually tied to a development deal.

He didn't do an awful lot for the next three years, and was farmed back out to the company's OVW developmental territory. He eventually made it back to the main roster, but departed in 2015. Apparently, this has been enough to pique WWE's interest.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, old-school adventure games (they're not dead), and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
