The WWE is always looking for young talent they could try to mold into the next big Superstar of the company.

In this business, there has been a lot of brother and sister combinations that have come and gone in the history of this industry. There’s a good chance if professional wrestling runs in your family, you will be on your way to joining the lifestyle yourself.

Now according to NoDQ.com, the WWE has signed the younger cousin of current WWE Champion Randy Orton. Orton’s younger cousin is only 18 years old and just graduated high school.

Randy’s brother Nathan has done some mixed martial arts but is yet to break the professional wrestling scene. I doubt he’ll be joining the family business, but I’m sure the family is pumped about Jasper being signed.

He’s currently dealing with a torn meniscus but will more than likely report to the WWE’s Performance Center in Florida once he’s recovered and ready to get to work.

Hopefully the kid is able to bring something to the table, but it will be tough to overshadow his big cousin and Uncle. If he’s talented just like Bob and Randy, he has a bright future in this business.

I just hope he can avoid the problems that Randy has faced.
