As previously noted, Crazzy Steve has opt out of his deal with Impact Wrestling after he received interest from WWE. However, for those hoping we’ll see him on WWE television soon will be upset to hear that it may be at least 90-days until WWE even signs him to an actual NXT deal.
PWInsider reports that WWE officials are telling talents that were previously under contract to another promotion that they will not enter into discussions with them for at least 90 days from their departure from the previous company. This was apparently done because Ring of Honor had several disputes with WWE when they tried to go after several of their guys back in March. ROH actually threatened WWE with tampering charges.
In the mean time Steve will be taking independent bookings but the belief is he will sign with WWE once the 90-days is up.
