Re: Next Tryout in Early Sept: Top Indie Stars Invited
I wish all the wrestlers who tryout good luck; personally (and I've said this for TNA as well) I'd love for them to scout out more under-the-radar independent/regional wrestlers. Admittedly I can't think of many off the top of my head right now (don't keep up with the indies like I used to) but to me that's actually a good thing as I can approach the talent with a fresh slate.
Timothy Thatcher is a guy that's really improved his look but his style isn't very fast paced or flashy. Hallowicked is another guy I've liked for a long time but he seems content to stay in CHIKARA.
As far as female standouts, obviously I would love for my favorite Mercedes Martinez to get her big break but I don't think she'll ever get signed to a major promotion as she doesn't have a very marketable look (I feel she's attractive but whatever) and she works hella stiff. Others like Cheerleader Melissa, Mia Yim, Cheery Bomb, Allysin Kay, Taylor Made, Kellie Skater, So Yum (Su Yung), Nicole Matthews, Veda Scott, Rain, Scarlett Bordeaux are all good options IMO. In general WWE doesn't really seem to actively scout female indie wrestlers like they do for males even though there are many attractive girls working the circuit.
