WWE has signed Joe Hennig, son of WWE Hall of Famer "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig and grandson of Larry "The Axe" Hennig, to a developmental contract. Joe made his wrestling debut last July. He appeared in a tag match on SmackDown last September, but never tagged in. Here is the official statement from the website of Harley Race's World League Wrestling:
Joe Hennig, son of WWE Hall of Famer “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig and grandson of Larry “the Ax” Hennig, recently became the latest Harley Race Wrestling Academy graduate to earn a developmental contract with WWE.
Hennig made his pro debut July 13, 2007, teaming with Ted DiBiase, Jr. to beat Dinn T. Moore and Branden Tatum by disqualification. He enjoyed a nine-month winning streak in World League Wrestling before suffering his first singles loss to “Wild” Wade Chism on March 8.
Hennig will report to Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE’s developmental territory in Tampa. His sister, Amy, is also a student at the Harley Race Wrestling Academy.
