MCW star Pat Brink re-signs with WWE

I wanted to publicly extend my congratulations to Maryland Championship Wrestling star Pat Brink for signing a developmental deal with WWE.

This will be Brink’s second stint with WWE developmental and Florida Championship Wrestling. Brink, an Atholton High graduate who grew up in Laurel, Md., wrestled as Kaleb O’Neal in FCW in 2008 and 2009 before being released because of disciplinary issues.


Brink went through a difficult time when he was in FCW (he had to deal with the deaths of his younger sister, grandmother and several close friends) and I’m glad that he is getting another opportunity to make it on a national level.

“I couldn't be more humble, proud and thankful that the WWE is giving me a second chance,” Brink, 29, wrote on his Facebook page.

Congratulations to a local guy made good!

Kevin, do you plan to do a story on the passing of General Skandor Akbar?
