Quite a few names have left Impact Wrestling in 2017, and it looks like the company could potentially be losing more stars in the months to come. Where the former Impact talents will end up remains to be seen, but it looks like at least one of them is WWE bound.

PWInsider reports that James Michael Curtin, better known to wrestling fans as Rockstar Spud, is set to make his WWE debut next week at the post-Clash of the Champions tapings.

According to the report, Spud will be joining the cruiserweight division which means he will be appearing on 205 Live and Monday Night Raw as well.

Rockstar Spud joined Impact Wrestling in 2012 and he was the first ever winner of the British Boot Camp competition. He stayed with Impact up until a few months ago, and during his time with the company he worked as a wrestler, an on screen personality and a ring announcer.

Spud is a former TNA X-Division Champion.

The former Impact star requested his release in September, and he reportedly signed a deal with WWE shortly after. Spud then returned to Great Britain and waited for paperwork regarding his work visa to get sorted out.

The timing of Spud’s impending debut couldn’t be any better, as WWE recently announced three special 205 Live events for January, and it’s believed that the company is planning more events for February.
