As we've previously reported on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, WWE has been interested in signing Prince Devitt and Karl Anderson, however, both have shied away from signing, in large part because they don't want to linger in the company's developmental system. They're also aware of the bad reputation Bill DeMott has for running talent through his continuous drills and they want no part of it.
We're told this was one of several reasons why Triple H recently met with DeMott and scolded him.
WWE recently approached Devitt again but this time with a significant offer. He was also given assurances of how long he would be in developmental and with the kind of money they would be paying him, there's no way he would be stuck in Florida forever.
TNA Wrestling is also interested in Prince Devitt and has extended an offer where he would go to TV right away and receive a significant push. However, our source says they would be "shocked" if Devitt signed with TNA because WWE has made a significant offer and going to TNA would harm his chances to go to WWE in the future.
When TNA accepted the fact that AJ Styles wasn't coming back and was signing with New Japan Pro Wrestling, there was a "knee jerk" reaction to go get Devitt. The feeling was he would be a significant player for them for many years. While Devitt is older than some realize, he's still four years younger than AJ Styles.
With WWE offering Devitt main roster kind of money and the quiet promise that he'd be on the main roster by the end of the year, it looks like they will land him. We're cautioned that WWE doesn't want word out about Devitt receiving special treatment because there are usually no promises of how long you'll be in developmental before getting called up.
