WWE is loading up their Performance Center once again for a tryout. There will be some hard decisions to make because plenty of these men and women are very impressive and have extensive backgrounds.
Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens reports that WWE welcomed 25 athletes from all over the pro sporting world and pro wrestling gathered at the WWE PC for a tryout.
Heath Slater trained two of them in Joey Lynch and Jesse Jordan so they’ve learned the ropes from Slater at his Wrestling school.
Flo Riley is from Torture Pro Wrestling and AJ Francis is from Team 3D Academy which is run by the Dudley Boyz.
Bryce Wollmann could do a lot of damage as he was a defensive lineman for the Augustana Vikings. Kristjan Sokoli is a former NFL defensive end, Taiwan Jones is a former NFL/AAF linebacker, and Makini Ominae Manu is a former football player as well. So they’ve got a few football players in the mix.
Randall Floyd is a former OVW TV Champion which used to be WWE’s developmental territory until moving to FCW which later evolved into NXT.
Mahmoud Sebie is a very interesting name on this list as an Egyptian Greco-Roman wrestler. He is a four-time Arab champion and a five-time African champion. So they might be giving him a very good look.
Stephanie Ayala also has an impressive resume as a two-time WBFF Fitness Model World Champion. She also the owner of Dynasty Training & Nutrition, and an ACE Certified Health Coach and ACE Certified Personal Trainer.
Nick Rodriguez is a model and has a background in jiu-jitsu, Donovan Dongo is a powerlifter, and Jana Angel is a digital media host. She also played professional volleyball before tryout.
Emily Andzulis and Lauren Regno were both on The Titan Games and now they’re in the same WWE Performance Center tryout.
There are a few indie wrestlers as well such as JXT from Australia and Lance Anoa’i, a 3rd generation wrestler currently wrestling in MLW. Yes, his last name is the same as Roman Reigns’ for a reason so he probably has quite a good shot.
Paxton Calloway is also an impressive 7-foot Independent wrestler. Patrick Scott trained at Steve Corino’s wrestling school and Danika Della Rouge trained at Buddy Wayne’s wrestling academy as well as the NJPW LA Dojo.
Alex Gracia is an independent wrestler who worked in RISE and STARDOM and NOVA aka Andrea Benoit was there. She was trained by Tyson Dux and is also Canadian.
Rounding out the list we have Courtney Roselle who is a certified Functional Strength Coach and CrossFit trainer and Jade Cargill who is a model and also played college basketball.
We will just have to wait and see who WWE decides that they want to sign, but they have some pretty good options in these new hopeful recruits.
