WWE wants to mold their Superstars in NXT into the kind of wrestlers that Vince McMahon wants to see. They are adjusting upcoming NXT contracts with a 6-month out-clause, because they don’t want to waste 3 years building someone who isn’t working out. Now the company has adjusted their recruitment focus when it comes to incoming female talent,
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez stated that WWE has a new cut-off when it comes to women they are looking to hire. It seems that the days of signing women with veteran experience might be over.
They’re very much into young women now — young women to the point where you know how they have the male cut-off thing where it’s where ‘we want you to be 27 or under 6-foot-2?’ Well, now they want to women to be young. I heard two numbers. I heard you have to be 23 or younger, or 25 or younger. That’s what they want now.
WWE is looking to build toward their future and they have a better chance at success if they can hire people early. They will also ensure that contracts don’t get too inflated if they can start them off without any previous pro wrestling experience.
