Indy standout Blake Christian, who most recently appeared as part of Saturday night's Impact Wrestling No Surrender event, has signed with WWE, according to a report from Fightful Select. Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has corroborated the story.
The four year pro has amassed a rather impressive resume of promotions worked for, particularly during this pandemic era over the past year.
Throughout 2020 and 2021, Christian wrestled for New Japan Pro Wrestling, Game Changer Wrestling, IWA Mid-South, Black Label Pro, and, as noted, Impact Wrestling.
In December, Christian took part in NJPW's Super J Cup in California, defeating Rey Horus in the quarterfinals before losing to El Phantasmo in the semis.
The following month, Christian wrestled in Impact's Super X Cup. He defeated KC Navarro and Crazzy Steve in the earlier rounds before falling to Ace Austin in the final match.
On Saturday night at Impact's No Surrender, Christian failed to win an eight-man "Triple Threat Revolver" match for a future X Division title match. Josh Alexander was the match's eventual winner.
