Former UAB Tight End Hayden Pittman to the WWE
Hayden Pittman formerly of the University of Alabama Birmingham Blazers has signed to the WWE.
This past Wednesday the former tight end could be seen on the UAB Football twitter sitting with now head creative executive Paul LeVesque also known by his ring name Triple H, who offered Pittman a chance to work out in the WWE performance training gym in Florida.
Pittman said ''I'll give you everything I got'' to LeVesque before shaking his hand to make it official. Once he left the room, you see the camera capturing his extreme excitement on his face.
The WWE had set up camps and tryouts in Nashville during Summerslam weekend to try to find the next big thing. The tryouts were competitive with only 14 people given a contract with the company in the end.
Pittman signed a three-year developmental contract with the wrestling company, and is set to begin training at the performance center in Orlando later this month.
Pittman was a former Tight end with the Blazers and had some success on the field. In 2020 he was a Second-Team All Conference USA catching 19 balls for 227 yards. He ended the season with a 25-game catch streak.
Tide 100.9 wishes Hayden Pittman luck in his future dreams as WWE Superstar.
