More On WWE Signing Jody Kristofferson

As noted earlier via press release, WWE has signed Kris Kristofferson’s son, Jody Kristofferson, to a developmental contract with the company.

Jody reportedly impressed Triple H in a tryout and once Hunter learned who his father was, his signing was imminent. The news was not made public until his All Pro Wrestling was over.

      No ring name needed for Kris Kristofferson, just the title of country musIc legend.

      As far as American country music's concerned, he's up there with the likes of Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette.

    I don't know anything about this Jody so I won't judge him till I see him. However, I hope he won't turn out to be the next David Otunga. A wrestler who's completely boring and terrible but is kept around just cause of his celebrity connections.

    I've actually seen a couple of the kid's matches and he's pretty good. He can be a huge star if WWE uses him right.
