Originally published at REPORT: Karl Fredericks signs with WWE

WWE adds Karl Fredericks to their talent roster. 

In the summer of 2022, Karl Fredericks took to his social media platforms to share that he opted not to re-sign with New Japan Pro-Wrestling

Fast forward to present day and it is being reported by PWInsider that Fredericks has signed with WWE. He is set to be a part of the NXT brand. 

While Fredericks was three years into his pro wrestling career, he joined the New Japan dojo and trained under Katsuyori Shibata. 

The 32-year-old Fredericks won the Young Lion Cup tournament in 2019. He was a part of an L.A. dojo crew that included Clark Connors, Alex Coughlin and Gabriel Kidd. 

In December, it was revealed that Dragon Lee is joining NXT and he’ll be starting this month.

Is he any good?

Pretty good, I’m mostly a NJPW in Japan guy, didn’t watch Strong a ton, but what I saw he was good, was certainly top of that class for a time

He’s come a long way and has a good look, and I would think he’d only get better in NXT. Good on him for betting on himself.
