El Generico Signs With WWE: More Indy Talent On The Way

Posted by Brad Davis January 9, 2013 5 Comments

It was reported last night by PWPonderings.com that independent wrestler El Generico was signed by WWE. The news has now been confirmed by multiple sources.

Generico has been pulled from this weekend’s Pro Wrestling Guerrilla event in California and could very well have wrestled his last match on the independent scene.

PWInsider is reporting that WWE signing El Generico is part of a broader company strategy to sign several of top independent workers. Specifically, WWE’s head of Talent Relations, Triple H, has “a number of names” on his radar. WWE will be actively perusing top independent talent in the coming months.

      ok BUT I hope they actually do something with these talents! I still recall them DESTROYING Too Cold Scorpio and making him Flash Funk!!! I wish I could slap the crap out of whomever had that idea!

        thats probably the same person that created the annoying Funkasaurus Brodus Clay character.

      Jeez, I hope WWE realises that Generico’s character is incredibly pivotal to his image; and to change it would be absolutely pointless.

      Also, I hope they let him use the ‘El Generico’ name…but with Vince’s obsession of owning things, I doubt that will happen. Maybe he could be called El Ordinario? Or El Standardito?

      Also, Kevin Steen needs to be seen on a bigger stage – whether WWE, or TNA, the dude is too good to stay in the indies forever. Still…I admire wrestlers such as Davey Richards – who refuse to go to the ‘big leagues’ in favour of helping companies such as ROH.
