Young left TNA Wrestling earlier this month along with Bobby Roode who also made a surprise appearance at ringside at the NXT Takeover: Dallas on WrestleMania weekend.
It has been reported that WWE has interest in bringing both of them in as “player coaches.” This means that they would be working NXT events, but also training up and coming talent at the WWE Performance Center.
