Fans have gotten used to seeing former Ring of Honor stars compete in NXT, and WWE’s developmental brand recently welcomed another former ROH star to the roster. WWE announced the signing of Donovan Dijak a few weeks ago, and he made his NXT in-ring debut when he faced Aleister Black at the live event in Largo.

Big things are happening for Donovan Dijak as far as his career is concerned, and big things are also happening for him in his personal life as well. Dijak welcomed a new son into the world this week. His baby has been named Connor James Dijak, and he has faith that someday his son will be a future WWE World Champion.
Congratulations to the Dijak family. You can check out a photo of Connor below.
The love of my life and a future @WWE World Champion:

Many wrestlers have signed with NXT, but not everyone ends up sticking around. Sami Callihan worked with the NXT brand for a few years as Solomon Crowe, but in 2015 he requested his release.
It looks like he could be Impact Wrestling bound as Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that there’s talk of Sami Callihan possibly signing with the company.
