I already knew that it was gonna happen, because I know how Lucha Underground book their talent, they deserve all the praise of this world if they made me care about Del fucking Rio.

And I'm sure the same fate will "suffer" the other LU guys if they sign for WWE, like @Legit BOSS said, just think where Catrina, Ivelisse, Cage and Sexy Star were before LU arrived.

Re: WWE planning to sign more ROH and Lucha Underground talents

Hopefully the wrestlers don't go and stay where they are, the thought of more entertaining characters being ruined is awful and the possibility of LU being negatively affected because of it is not something I'm interested in

Competition breeds greatness but also takes heart, skill and time and effort.. buying out the competition means you can be lazy.. that's right up Vince's alley.

Re: WWE planning to sign more ROH and Lucha Underground talents

As for the mentions above of people who do or don't want to see their faves from LU and ROH go to WWE.. not only do I NOT want to see anyone from ROH and LU go to WWE period, I wish most of my favorites from WWE and the good ones left to languish (Johnny Curtis, Damien Sandow, Heath Slater, etc etc) would leave WWE and LU could afford to take them all in, and have TV time to show them all with intelligent booking. I know its a pipe dream, but it's sweet to imagine..

What say you?

This doesnt sound too promising for ROH because they cannot compete with that WWE pocketbook. It's great for the talent, though. NXT could become amazing if these plans come to fruition.
I see this as a plus for the art form in general. ROH and LU quality action in a NXT environment gives these guys a bigger platform. If they can capitalize on the momentum the current NXT roster has already created and bring the brand even more visibility, then it makes the indy/NXT approach that much more financially viable in the future.

That could lead to changes on the main roster, cause we all know, money talks.

@Drago @PENTAGON @A-C-P @The Tempest

Just let it soak in that WWE rejected Catrina, Ivelisse, Sexy Star, and Brian Cage, and look at them now. They would turn Pentagon Jr. into La Parka within a week.
I thought the idea here was to bring those guys in as NXT only superstars? If that's the move, it would certainly do damage to the ROH and LU, but would get these guys on larger platform at the same time.

Well duh whu would they stop trying to acquire great talent.

The Indy's will do what they have always done and find that's find new future stats. Some new star will arrive when the old Indy stars leave. You guys have nothing to worry about.

I don't watch a whole lot of ROH and LU, but I do like a few talents there. Don't ruin any of them Vince

Stop teasing @3MB4Life like that, he would die from marking out if that would happen.
