WWE has a lot of plans for the future, and a number of ideas to ensure the company’s success. The company needs talent that they can rely on for years to come, and it seems that they are focusing on the company’s next wave of stars.
As we previously reported, Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that, “There is a big internal focus right now to get younger aged talent on Raw and Smackdown right now.” It turns out that this policy has a lot of support internally.
Ringside News reached out to confirm this story, and a tenured member of the creative team confirmed to us that, “A number of writers were talking about this, how both Paul LeVesque and Paul Heyman made huge pushes to bring new young talent into the mix and eventually to the top.”
It was also noted to us that, “both Austin Theory and Rhea Ripley were originally called up by Heyman in 2020, during the pandemic.” Now, we have Rhea Ripley and Austin Theory on top of the company.
This policy to push younger talent was also backed up by our source as they commented to say that, “It’s just smart and logical!” Obviously, this idea has support within the company.
We will have to see who WWE decides to push next, and how far they are able to go in the company. There are a few younger talents that are ready to go, but it might take a little bit of time to elevate them to that next level.
