Default Why didn't WWE sign Prime Time Elix Skipper

Watching him in WCW 2000, the guy was a very talented cruiserweight and could have done some good in WWE, so why didn't they ever sign him?? Would have been a better signing than Nathan Jones or Heidenrich.

Nathan Jones and Heidenreich were hired because they were huge. We must remember that Johnny Ace was responsible for hiring talent during this time, so most of WWE's acquisitions were guys like Snitsky, Khali, Nathan Jones, Heidenreich, etc.

They did and released him 9 months later.

No different than Mike Sanders and the shitload of other guys they brought over, sent to HWA and fired without calling them up.

Elix really wasn't that special and they saw that, especially with how deep the main roster was.

Had no use for him and keeping him would be giving money away because you know you got nothing for him.

Oh yeah, supposedly Vince didn't like him because he acted "too white".

Style wise, he would suffer in WWE. TNA was the perfect place for him to be.

I'll always remember him for that Goldberg promo in WCW, and the titantron.
