WWE made some big additions to the NXT roster this week. Take a look at the official photos of the newest recruits at the Performance Center.
There was a time not so long ago in WWE where Vince McMahon and co chose to believe that there was nothing pro wrestling related outside of their own four walls. Oh, how the times have changed. Nowadays, not only are WWE more than willing to sign wrestlers who have made names for themselves elsewhere, but they even include them in tournaments despite not being under contract with them.
One of those tournament competitors was Candice LeRae who made it to the quarterfinals of the Mae Young Classic. LeRae has even made appearances on NXT a time or two. Well, expect to see a lot more of her now she has officially signed with WWE. She isn't the only big addition to WWE's roster this week either as the signings of Ricochet and tag team War Machine were also confirmed.
If you're unfamiliar with one or all of the latest additions to the Performance Center then you have come to the right place. Photos were posted of the new recruits on WWE.com this week and we have included a few of them for you here. LeRae will be joining her husband Johnny Gargano on the NXT roster and presumably, Ricochet and War Machine will be the property of the Full Sail brand, for the time being at least.

There are fears that Ricochet will be added to 205 Live's ranks rather than NXT which is something not many fans who know of his work would like to see. Ricochet performs moves in the ring that seem physically impossible and weighs well under 200 lbs so could be forced to join the purple brand. Hopefully, Ricochet will be treated more like Finn Balor than TJ Perkins.
They're at the Performance Center, we have been introduced to them, now all that is left is for them to start their in-ring careers. While Ricochet could end up on 205 Live, LeRae and War Machine will almost certainly be wrestling on NXT. It's highly likely that more of the brand's women plus a couple of its tag teams will be moving on up to Raw or SmackDown Live sooner rather than later, and these latest recruits will fill those slots.
