Usually they need an "in." Like Bo Rotunda/Bo Dallas, who I believe was signed to a developmental contract at age 18. I think Cody Rhodes signed when he was 20. Orton was 20 when he signed. I think you can see a pattern here.

Jeff Hardy was 16 when WWE hired him to be a jobber on TV for them.

Adam Mercer seems to be someone who caught somebody's eye at a very young age, and looking at him I suppose you can see why.
