One man has dominated the entire Independent scene over the past few years. That man is Kevin Steen. He was at a show in Pittsburgh where he had the fans chanting, "ROPE!" Personally, no man that I can think of could make fans chant " rope" during a wrestling show. WWE had to know about his fantastic wrestling ability and even better microphone skills.

For the past few months, it was rumored that Steen would be taking his talents to the WWE. A photo surfaced today that has Steen shaking hands with Triple H at the NXT Developmental Center. On top of that, he's wearing a t-shirt with NXT right in the center.

It is now official; the WWE has the best wrestling promotion on the planet. At the moment you read that statement, it does indeed sound laughable. However, take a look at the recent signings the WWE have made, and then the general public's opinion will change drastically.
