Personally I think one of the appeals for WWE about Kevin Steen is that he can do crazy athletic moves despite not looking the part. While he definitely shouldn't show up as an out of shape slob, he shouldn't go over-board by losing weight either. When the crowds see a man like Kevin Steen pulling off moonsaults and other stuff, they will automatically be more interested than if it was a Sami Zayn doing them.

WWE is not really about the bodybuilder look nowadays but more about distinctive looks. Even back in the day Vince told Jake Roberts to stop working out so he retains an unique look from anyone else.

Also having workers like Kevin Steen in your company is always an asset even if you don't ever elevate them to main event talents.

Another thing that Steen's got going for him that I completely forgot about... the guy is a native French speaker. The WWE is a global company at this point, so having employees who speak multiple languages is only a positive in their eyes.

On that note Steen was really over with French fans when he wrestled for PWG in Paris a few years ago.

If this is true, then I'm happy. Steen has been stale since the back end of 2012, even before then, so a change for him would be nice as a fan. The WWE raping the indy scene is still slightly annoying, though.

There is actually a reason: he's fat. He lost some weight, but not enough.

funny how this post try into the WWE willn't sign steen because he too fat post than talking about the tryout itself. Looking at some of newest sign wrestlers by the WWE like indy guys smith jame and shane taylor or strongman Adam Scherr it not like they would in that great of shape. The fact the WWE PC has one of the best gym anyone can go to will be a major help for steen to get in better shape. I would sign him on the fact he is a nice guy who has the best drive to be a wrestler.

I can't see WWE utilizing any of these talents effectively. I wish them all the best though. Hopefully I'm pleasantly surprised.

Kevin Steen actually has slimmed down plenty if you have seen any recent pics in the past month. He may not have the "look" but neither did El Generico, Tyler Black, Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley etc and look at them now. Steen is great in the ring and very athletic at that. He's also one of the best at promos and getting a crowd reaction. Hell, if any of you have seen any PWG dvds these last few years he also do commentary as well and he's damn good at that!! Plus I'd love to see Steen vs Generico starting back up in WWE regardless if it'll be watered down. As much as I love both it hasn't been the same watching them without each other.

Last time TNA (over a decade ago) did that we got something called the X Division. You might have heard of it.
