Originally published at

Petey Williams is joining WWE full-time, per report.

The WWE is bringing Petey Williams on-board in a full-time producer spot, as first reported by Fightful Select. The site noted that Williams had been on a trial run with WWE since late October and this week, he signed his contract with the company.

Petey Williams previously worked with IMPACT Wrestling as a producer and in-ring talent. Williams’ last televised match for IMPACT was the 10/14 episode of their weekly TV show.

This is Petey’s first go-around at WWE throughout his two decades in wrestling.

WWE had Jimmy Wang Yang on a trial run recently and he would later clarify that they opted not to move forward with him as a producer.

That is awesome to hear! I worked with Petey back in the mid 2000’s, and he was one of the nicest most down to earth guys in the business. Super happy to see him receive this opportunity.

Hopefully he sticks and isnt just another release in a year.
