TNA Wrestling announced on Wednesday they have hired Chris Melendez under a multi-year agreement.

Melendez is a former Team 3D Academy student and is a veteran of the United States Army. He was severely injured while in combat in Afghanistan, resulting in the amputation of his left leg. It didn't stop him from pursuing his dream as a pro wrestler as he began training in 2012 with Bully Ray and Devon.

Melendez will make his TNA debut at the August 5-7 Impact tapings in New York City.
