WWE held a private two day tryout with 30 pro wrestlers earlier this week in Orlando, Florida at their new multi-million dollar WWE Performance Center and according to the Wrestling Observer newsletter two former Ring of Honor wrestlers were standouts. Former ROH World Tag Team Champions Eddie Edards and Davey Richards were said be a cut above the rest in the pack of wrestlers trying to get deal with the major league that is WWE.
This team of WWE officials who oversaw the tryout reportedly included former WCW wrestler Bill Demott, former WWE Intercontinental Champion William Regal, former WWE Tag Team Champion Joey Mercury, and longtime WWE producer Terry Taylor. It's worth noting that WWE has fitted their Performance Center with private live video connections to WWE headquarters in Stanford, Connecticut so it's possible that other WWE management officials could have remotely been involved with the tryout.
Pro Wrestling Examiner:
Edward and Richards have long been rumored to making a move to the WWE. Both men besides being a sucessful tag team in ROH known as the American Wolves, have also individually held the ROH World title. Richards and Edwards have gained a reputation for stealing the show around the world, with their Japanese influenced hard-hitting wrestling style and fierce intensity. If WWE does indeed sign the Wolves, they could be picking up two of the best free agents in the world of Pro Wrestling.
WWE's new Performance Center will continue to be source of news about WWE's prospective talent efforts with NXT and recruiting pro wrestlers and athletes to join the company to potentially become TV 'superstars'.
