WWE Scouting Amateur Wrestlers, WWE Negotiating With Hulu, FCW
– WWE officials are negotiating with NBC Universal’s Hulu where they may make Superstars and NXT as Hulu exclusives in an attempt to get more people to use the service. The new developmental show that begins taping on May 17th in Winter Park, Florida may also be included in the deal.
– Terry Taylor has been at FCW for the past week but nobody seems to know what his official job is. Talents in FCW were told that nothing is going to be changing except the TV tapings will now be done in Winter Park, Florida.
– WWE’s Gerald Brisco has been heavily scouting amateur wrestlers lately. Brisco was at the Olympic trials in Iowa City last week and currently has two heavyweight wrestlers that he’s really high on. A Greco-Roman heavyweight from Turkey who is 6-5 and 285lbs. wants to join WWE but the hold-up is that he doesn’t know English so they are trying to get him to learn it now.
