Re: WWE Signing Indy Talents
I used to read all about Paul Birchill (as it was spelt back then) in the British wrestling magazines in the early 2000's, touting him as the next Brock Lesnar despite the fact he was several inches shorter and probably about 75 pounds lighter. Almost every month there was a new article on the guy and when he finally got signed by WWE, he fell flat. I didn't mind him but he certainly didn't live up to the hype.
Sami Callihan on the other hand I think is deserving of the hype. The guy cuts good promos, can work just about any style and you always see him in those training camp videos with former WWE guys, always trying to get better and learn the art. I'd love to see him in WWE, which I think is bound to happen more sooner than later.
