Backstage News from WWE’s Recent Tryout Camp with Several Top Independent Wrestlers

– Names being listed for last week’s WWE tryouts in Orlando at the WWE Performance Center include ACH, Arya Daivari (younger brother of Shawn Daivari), David Starr, Kevin Steen, Michael Elgin, Rocky Romero, Roderick Strong, Ronny Reeves, Willie Mack and Zane Dawson. Names confirmed to have worked the camp are Dawson, Steen, Strong and ACH.

Apparently Steen and Strong did well with Strong being the star of the camp, both from an athletic standpoint and officials were impressed with his speaking ability.

No word yet on who will be offered contracts but WWE usually informs talents within 4-6 weeks.

    Steen has the big physique WWE is looking for AND he impressed? Interesting…interesting indeed. I wouldn’t be sad if Strong made it in either. Both of these guys would be doing great things in WWE. An ROH/Indy Stable with Cesaro, Bryan and Steen at the lead? I would watch that.

      Agreed til wwe fucks up everything! Did a great job with Bryan and had him start a movement, and recently cesaro just started to get hyped after a year and a half! Huge fan of Strong and Steen, still waiting foe Zayn to come up into the main rosters! But let’s see how it’s play, and hopefully they treat these guys like Bryan and then the WWE wil get somewhere!
