Though it had been known for some time that they would be headed to NXT, WWE officially announced on Wednesday afternoon that Tommy End, Big Damo, and “Crazy” Mary Dobson have reported to the company’s Performance Center.
The three new arrivals join Roderick Strong as the most significant talents to recently make their way to NXT.
End should already be familiar to many fans in the United States. He has appeared in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s Battle of Los Angeles both of the last two years, and has made several appearances for EVOLVE Wrestling. Originally from the Netherlands, End has a kickboxing and martial arts background.
In his final independent wrestling match before heading to WWE, End faced PROGRESS Champion Marty Scurll and Mark Haskins in a triple threat match for the title in the main event of PROGRESS Wrestling’s landmark show at the O2 Academy in Brixton. His final independent match in the United States was at BOLA, and he bid farewell to EVOLVE in a match against Matt Riddle over SummerSlam weekend.
Damo, an imposing wrestler from Northern Ireland, similarly had several farewell stops in the United Kingdom before heading to the Performance Center.
Despite her age, the 23-year-old Dobson already has a significant amount of experience since making her professional debut in 2011. And she has already appeared in NXT multiple times as an enhancement talent.
