WWE is looking to add as many big names to the company as possible, but sometimes a big name isn’t what they need. After all, not everyone can already have a huge fan base when they’re coming into WWE.
Jonah Rock is on his way to the WWE Performance Center in January. We previously reported that Shane Strickland was supposedly on his way as well, but there are issues with his Lucha Underground contract. However, it’s been reported that January’s WWE Performance Center class might not include a lot of names we already know.
PW Torch reports that WWE is looking to sign lesser known talent because they are trying to figure out who is going to be a big name before they make one for themselves on the indies. The idea is to lock down wrestlers before they break out on their own and become more attractive to indie promoters. This might also help WWE lock talent down for a smaller price.
WWE has a lot of big plans for the next few years as their company continues to expand. As it turns out, they not only need names to excite people, but they are also looking for more homegrown talent that they can build from the ground up
