Their reasoning, and I can't say it's wrong, is that this level of talent/size potential their after likely wouldn't go the indie route. Indie guys have been doing the indie thing since their 17 years old and are hardcore fans. College athletes/grads are 22-23 and are not going to hit up a wrestling school and go the indie route and live off of peanuts for 3-4 years, they'll use their college education to go work.

Now ideally I'd like to see these guys loaned out after enough time in developmental - loan them out to Japan or PR for a year or something.

Re: Who would you like to get signed?

Look at WWE and NXT now . I think virtually any notable indy guy has a great chance of getting signed. We're not in the Laurinaitis era anymore. No more Mason Ryan and Alex Riley types dominating the developmental scene.

Haven't really seen any of Roddy in Japan so I can't speak on that though... don't get me wrong, I find him entertaining in the ring - I just think that he'd have so many things going against him for WWE's wrestling vision that I can't see him having much success.



I actually think this is why the Briscoes SHOULD be signed... the rambling redneck style promos they cut are super entertaining in my opinion. It's completely unique and would stand out against anything else in WWE today.

What is your issue with that promo? The content (them bashing WWE) or the language? I'm genuinely curious of your opinion, I'm not trying to be dismissive.
That was promo was way too edgy for WWE. They'd be watered down in WWE, which is something I don't want to see happen.

Re: Who would you like to get signed?

I would love to see Sami Callihan signed as well. Don't think I mentioned him earlier. Granted he has no business jumping in to a feud with a major star, but I would mark out to see him violently attack Sheamus with a pair of brass knuckles. Come from the crowd, and just begin punching Sheamus in the face, drawing blood, and shouting obscene language at him. Sheamus, being that he loves a good fight welcomes it, and the two men brawl with Callihan getting the best of Sheamus each time. Sheamus informs the WWE Universe that he knows this tough Irish son of a bitch, and that they call him "Crazy Sammy" back home.

Have Sheamus put him over as a legit bad ass despite his small size. Sheamus says that he is incredibly fast, and sneaky. He says you can never tell when he is going to strike first. We to find out that these two have a history with one another "kayfabe". This would put Callihan on the map. Obviously he would have to go through NXT first, but eventually when they push him on the main roster I could see something like this working it's way on to television.

No one. WWE is the only game in town at the moment, but I'd rather see another promotion rise up to prominence, which won't be possible if WWE keeps cherry picking all the good indy talent

Completely agree with you that sammi callihan needs to be in the WWE. Callihan vs Ambrose would be huge, they have the history. maybe sammi could take each member of the shield and leave ambrose as the last member of the shield left and standing and let them go fucking nuts in a hardcore match at a ppv.

I agree with you but I don't think that WWE's fault. TNA had Sasha Banks at a gutcheck event had Sami Calihan at a gutcheck. They had The Big O and Nick Primo at the gutcheck event over the weekend. TNA could have signed all these people and "so far" have chosen not to. So how is that WWE's fault?
