Bray's Fergal on WWE

HE already conquered Japan and now Bray man Fergal Devitt is set to take over the rest of the world, having been signed by WWE.

The 33-year-old Charnwood native has already reported to the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando, Florida.

'I grew up watching wrestling my whole life,' Fergal 'Prince' Devitt told WWE on the occasion of the signing. 'To get the chance to step in the ring that I've watched on TV so many times is a dream come true.'

Fergal has been fighting in Japan for the past eight years and lives part of the time in his native Bray. Apart from facing fellow Irishman Sheamus, his goal is to ultimately wrestle one of wrestling's biggest superstars. 'The target would be John Cena,' the Bray man told WWE. 'If you're wrestling John Cena, you're in the main event.'

It remains to be seen if Devitt will be a jobber or rival to CM Punk's infamy but Vince McMahon has him now so watch this space!
