A recent addition to the WWE roster is gearing up to display their abilities in an upcoming event outside the WWE realm. Greg Kerkvliet, a standout 285-pound freestyle wrestler from Pennsylvania State University, has decided to opt-out of joining the professional wrestling giant for now. Instead, he will be returning to his alma mater to continue competing for his team, aiming for a fourth consecutive NCAA men’s freestyle wrestling championship victory.

Kerkvliet made his intentions clear through an Instagram post, expressing his commitment to PSU for an additional year. Despite being a notable signee of the WWE NIL program with four consecutive All-American accolades, surpassing even the legendary Brock Lesnar in this regard, Kerkvliet is prioritizing his collegiate wrestling pursuits over a swift transition to the WWE.

While Kerkvliet takes a step back from WWE, the terrain remains vibrant with incoming talent from the NCAA. Oba Femi, a prominent figure in NXT and the current North American title holder, stands out as a promising NIL signee. Additionally, the spotlight shifts to Peyton Prussin, a rising star in NAIA wrestling, who is teasing her imminent WWE debut under the ring name Kendal Grey. Her social media presence hints at a formidable arrival, with a tweet signaling her intent to conquer the NXT Women’s division.

As the wrestling world awaits the debut of Prussin as Kendal Grey, fans anticipate the impact she will make alongside established talents like Roxanne Perez and the rest of the NXT Women’s roster. The narrative of NCAA athletes transitioning into the WWE universe continues to evolve, promising an influx of fresh faces and dynamic energy into the professional wrestling scene. Stay tuned for more updates on these exciting developments outside the WWE domain.
