WWE signs first Chinese wrestler in Bin Wang

Over the last few years, the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida has become one of the premier places to be if you want to be a professional wrestler. It looks like the company has taken one more step into the future when they signed their first Chinese wrestler in Bin Wang.

WWE COO Triple H and arguably the most recognizable face in the company John Cena both flew over to China to get Wang officially signed to a contract. It was certainly a momentous occasion when he put pen to paper and Triple H welcomed him to the Performance Center.

WWE has been signing some pretty big names in the sporting world with former Germany goalkeeper Tim Wiese agreeing to come try his hand at wrestling last week. Wang is one of the many faces that will help change the company for the better.

One of the highlights of the day in China was when Cena took to the podium and gave an opening statement and thanked them for having the company in Shanghai. What was surprising is that we found out the 15-time World Champion is fluent in Mandarin.

Bin Wang is a pretty experience veteran in his own rite. He trained for two years at legendary Japanese wrestler Antonio Inoki’s Inoki Genome Federation.
