WWE rumors; Ring of Honor stars possibly having WWE try out matches

The WWE have already made it clear that they are not interested in indie styled wrestlers, which was made clear when they refused to offer Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards contracts, despite impressive tryouts with the WWE. However, reported Feb. 13, the WWE is considering two Ring of Honor stars to try out for them anyway.

Of course, the two men they are looking at are not indie styled superstars. The two Ring of Honor stars they want to try out for them are former ROH World Champion Kevin Steen and former Top Prospect winner Michael Elgin.

Kevin Steen is under six feet tall, but weighs a bulky 240 pounds and looks little like what the WWE normally uses in the company. Elgin is the same height as Steen and just weighs a little more, but it built like a fire hydrant, very muscular and fit.

When it comes to in-ring styles, Steen has a reckless, exciting style where he will hit moves with his body that no one would expect. Elgin is more of a power wrestler, pretty similar to Big E in the WWE, although nowhere near as big. While Steen is not a WWE styled wrestler, he does have something most indie stars don't have, and that is a very strong promo style, one of the best talkers in Ring of Honor.

Kevin Steen's former tag team partner El Generico is already in the WWE developmental system under the name Sami Zayn.

At the moment, both men are being booked strong in Ring of Honor and are both in the world title hunt, so if the WWE were to sign one or both wrestlers, it would hurt Ring of Honor more than it would help the WWE.
