They would be a dummy not to be interested. WWE certainly loves piling up talent both down in NXT and on their main roster. There are a lot of gifted wrestlers around the world and with more and more shows airing online, it has become a lot easier to see this talent elsewhere. That means a lot more opportunities both for the wrestlers and WWE to get something out of this, and it might be the case again.
According to PWInsider.com by way of Ringsidenews.com, WWE is interested in former Impact Wrestling World Champion Eli Drake, whose contract with Impact Wrestling expires in May. WWE was interested in Drake before, though Drake signed an extension with Impact Wrestling. Drake wrestled for WWE before, performing in the developmental system under the name Slate Randall.
Drake is certainly someone who knows how to talk. Check out one of his rather entertaining chats:
Opinion: I’m all for this as I’ve been a big Drake fan for a long time. He has a good look and is more than passable in the ring, but more importantly he has all the charisma in the world and can talk with a confidence that you don’t often see in WWE. If WWE is willing to bring back some of the people they’ve brought back, they would be crazy not to do the same thing with Drake.
Do you want to see Drake back in WWE? Who else from Impact Wrestling would fit well in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
