Alex Zayne To Debut On WWE 205 Live As Ari Starling

The former GCW star will be fighting with the cruiserweights

Alex Zayne is set to make his WWE debut later this week on Friday's edition of 205 Live. 

Friday's show was taped ahead of last night's episode of NXT and Zayne stepped inside a WWE ring for the first time as Ari Starling. Who he will be facing is currently unknown, but the likes of The Bollywood Boyz, Jake Atlas, Tony Nese, August Grey and Ariya Daivari are all regularly featured on the show.

"The Sauce" signed with WWE back in December 2020 and he was in the same Performance Center class as Malcolm Bivens' client Tyler Rust and NXT Tag Team Champions Nash Carter and Wes Lee of MSK.

Before that, Zayne was a star on the independent wrestling scene and he competed for the likes of Game Changer Wrestling, Black Label Pro and Warrior Wrestling. He also regularly performed for New Japan Pro-Wrestling in the United States and NJPW was interested in signing him, but Zayn ultimately opted to join Vince McMahon's company instead.
