Backstage News on WWE Tryouts – Top Indy Stars Participate & More
– The WWE tryouts at NXT this past weekend were described as grueling as hell and very physical. One wrestler noted that it was the toughest time of his life.
One talent who paid to be in the tryouts quit in the middle of the first day. There were between 10 and 14 injuries suffered over the weekend and a source noted that most of the guys that got hurt were non-wrestling guys who came in thinking they were tough.
No word yet on who will be offered deals but officials at the tryouts said they would be making offers in 2-4 weeks.
Popular wrestlers who attended the tryouts include ROH TV Champion Adam Cole, Maria’s boyfriend Mike Bennett, DGUSA star Samuray del Sol, independent star Ricky Reyes, Northeastern wrestler Smith James and Luke Hawx from Extreme Rising. There was talk that Sami Callihan was there but that’s not confirmed yet.
