Nigerian Born American Wrestler, Sesugh Uhaa Has Been Recruited To The NXT

Uhaa along with 10 other recruits was introduced to the NXT. This new group has seven international and four United States wrestlers to make it the most internationally-versed class yet.

Although registered as a domestic wrestler (United States) Uhaa is Nigerian born originally from Benue States.

He developed a solid reputation working for promotions like Dragon Gate USA and Japan.

The athlete began his journey into pro wrestling in 2009 with the help of veterans such as WWE alum Curtis Hughes at World Wrestling Alliance 4’s training school in Atlanta.

 “I went to a military high school,” Uhaa said.

Sports were my outlet and a way to get away from the military life. I wanted to play all year long. Athletics have always been my life. I didn’t want any point in time where I wasn’t doing something. I would go from one season to the next. At one point, I was doing two sports in one season.”
