WWE: Company Signs Lance Hoyt

Former TNA Wrestling star Lance Hoyt announced over the weekend that he’s signed a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Hoyt, who most recently wrestled in TNA as "Lance Rock" as part of the Rock & Rave Connection with Jimmy Rave and former WWE Diva Christy Hemme, made the announcement at an indy show in Arlington, Texas.

The show was promoted by Professional Championship Wrestling, the company that trained Hoyt and gave him his first break in the industry. At the end of the PCW show, they aired a tribute video for Hoyt and all the wrestlers gave him a farewell celebration.

No word yet on when Hoyt will start with WWE, but expect him to head to Florida Championship Wrestling shortly.
