WWE Seeking To Partner With US Olympics, Talents Encouraged



- WWE is trying to open a relationship with the US Olympic committee so they will have an “in” for prospective Olympic athletes who either don’t quite make the team or those who do well but are in sports where there are no professional leagues.

WWE would be interested in the wrestlers, of course, but the feeling is they would also be interested in making stars out of weight men such as shot putters, discus throwers or Olympic lifters.

- FCW brought in 23 to 35 athletes this past week – some experienced independent wrestlers but mostly successful college wrestlers that were recruited by Gerald Brisco. The wrestlers were told if they are signed by WWE, they would value them more if they continued and finished their studies in college as opposed to quitting school and starting in developmental right away.

WWE is talking about doing similar tryouts in foreign countries such as the UK and Australia.
