Refilling the NXT benches. One of the biggest stories so far this year has been a bunch of wrestlers seemingly wanting out of WWE. While that may or may not be in an attempt to head over to AEW, it certainly seems that not all is well in McMahonLand. However, there are still a ton of people who want to go to New York one day and some of those people took a big step in that direction.
Well hello there. Check out this look at the newest crop of rookies:
WWE has recently welcomed a new class to the WWE Performance Center, meaning they will be starting with NXT in the near future. Some of these names are bigger than others, with the most well known names in the class being ACH and Trevor Lee, both of whom have regularly performed on the independent circuit for years. There are also college football players and international stars included in the class.
Opinion: These are the names that you have to sign, but at the same time I’m not sure where WWE is going to put all these people. They have so many names on their roster already and there is almost no way to feature everyone with just an hour of television a week. It’s going to be a long time before these people all make it to television, but I’m not sure if there is going to be room for them all.
Which of the rookies has the best upside? Who else do you want to see signed? Let us know in the comments below.
