Take this with a HUGE pinch of salt but Octagon Jr. (who wrestles on the US Indy circuit as Samuray Del Sol) might have had a WWE tryout last weekend.
He was scheduled to perform at an AAA event but no-showed with the excuse of a prior arrangement with an "American company". Apparently his Samuray name doesn't apppear on any known cards for that weekend, while the dates did coincide with a WWE tryout (of which consisted of invited wrestlers only). It must be said that Samuray's ultimate goal in wrestling is to make it in WWE and, despite the name/gimmick he's been blessed with in AAA, if he was given an invitation he would have taken it.

I heard the same thing from mixed sources. I'm fearful of what WWE will do to both Samuray's and Generico's characters. Take Del Rio for example. An AMAZING masked wrestler down in Mexico, but WWE completely changed his character and even went so far to unmask him, which in Mexico is a total sin.
