In a turn of events never thought possible a contracted WWE wrestler is currently a part of an autograph session at another Independent company's event. You read that right current NXT wrestler Sami Zayn is actually appearing at the Evolve shows both today and tomorrow in New York. Though Sami will not be appearing on camera due to his obligations with the WWE he will still be at the arena and be a part of an autograph signing prior to the show. Bearing in mind that you may think this is the first time WWE is acknowledging another company it isn't as Hunter also spoke about Evolve last week during the conference call a few days before NXT Takeover: Respect.
The idea of WWE actually someone they have under contract appear even off camera at another wrestling is extremely un-heard off and something many never thought they would see. Sami appearing is just the start many unique possibilities that WWE has on their horizon. The future seems bright for the world of NXT and Evolve, but is still very dark for the WWE.
