Their reasoning, and I can't say it's wrong, is that this level of talent/size potential their after likely wouldn't go the indie route. Indie guys have been doing the indie thing since their 17 years old and are hardcore fans. College athletes/grads are 22-23 and are not going to hit up a wrestling school and go the indie route and live off of peanuts for 3-4 years, they'll use their college education to go work.

Now ideally I'd like to see these guys loaned out after enough time in developmental - loan them out to Japan or PR for a year or something.
