Steen has been working heavily to drop weight for the last few months for the tryout, so hopefully he will be in good shape for the tryout. The first thing they do on day one of the camp is apparently to test cardio by working them to the point of near vomiting. If he performs poorly there it'll sour them on him for the whole camp, even though he's a good wrestler and talker.
If a guy has poor cardio they find it insulting, since the person apparently thought it was ok to show up in that kind of condition.
I doubt they'll sign Steen, he's been at the top of ROH for long enough. I don't think WWE have missed him, they've reviewed him and didn't want him. If they didn't sign the Wolves, what chance does ACH have? He's black and skinny. Roderick Strong is same as ACH, but instead of being black he couldn't get over in TNA. Michael Elgin lacks the charisma, he only looks like a monster compared to the ROH roster.
The only one with a hope in Hell was Michael Bennett and what chance does he have, since the apron piledriver and his soon to be wife's twitter tirade on the powerful by association Bella's.
I can't see wwe hiring Roddy for the sure reason that if they passed on the wolves they'll pass on him ( Roddy is talented but like the wolves he's kind of bland and is rather green on the mic). If Elgin is getting a tryout, I have no doubt that he'll get signed because he has the size that Vince and Hunter adore and is talented for a man his size. I can't say much for ACH other than wwe already has enough high fliers like Gabriel, Neville, Bourne and Kingston
I think Elgin's got it in da bag. He's got muscles for days AND he can go in the ring. Roddy will probably go to TNA, hopefully.

"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."
Elgin IMO wouldn't make it far in the wwe. He's not a tall guy and his feats of strength on the indies are done on smaller indivuals roh, etc. I don't see him doing the same stuff to guys like orton, cena, cesaro, Henry, kahli, sheamus, bray. Elgins selling point is his strength and he gets signed he can't do stuff like that on a usual basis.
I hope Steen gets signed. Im not saying he,s going to be the next biggest thing but he is way better then alot of guys in nxt. And I feel so emotionally attached to the guy from following him over the years id love to see him make some money for his family and realize his dreams.
Michael Elgin imo has potential. Could be a great monsterheel similair to Rhyno.
