WWE has been constantly on the lookout for fresh and promising talent. With the fading age of grand superstars who can level arenas with their sheer presence, it has become a necessity not just for WWE but for other pro wrestling promotions as well to find the next big thing. It appears that WWE NXT has recruited a promising face who could carry the torch forward.

As per a report from PWInsider, WWE NXT has brought in a collegiate wrestler. The wrestler in question is Copeland Barbee, a 23-year-old who attempted to join the ranks earlier at an appearance at the WWE Performance Center.

Copeland started his career as an amateur wrestler at the Queens University of Charlotte in 2017–2018, when he was a freshman. As per the report, he wrestled in the heavyweight class. It is not exactly clear when the fresh talent is going to get unveiled and rolled out at the yellow-and-black brand.

WWE has been stacked on the NXT roster as of late. In a previous report via PWInsider, new NXT recruits were assigned ring names. These include Dion Lennox, who was the former Los Angeles Rams linebacker Andrzej Hughes-Murray, and Keanu Carver, real name Kevin Robertson, who played defensive tackle for Temple University.


More information on Copeland Barbee has yet to surface. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more updates on all things pro-wrestling.
