Re: WWE Signs All-American Wrestler to Deal
From JR's blog:
It seems to fit in with what he's said in other blogs -- the standard of athletic conditioning in the open tryouts has been very low. Again, I just hope the current developmental team isn't hamstringing these guys.
These comments are the reasons why people shouldn't pay any attention to recent rumors claiming that WWE is looking to sign a bunch of Indy workers. Signing college athletes and people based on the look and size will always be what WWE wants most. Seeing what J.R. posted is horrible. Mainly looking for college athletes is a horrible direction to take. How many of these types actually succeed these days? It's funny that they have this mindset yet they recently got rid of TAC and Chad Baxter, both of whom were not in the system for too long. Doesn't it also say something that Cesaro, Bryan and The Shield are getting TV time, yet Swagger is nowhere to be found?
