You have to keep the shelves stocked. There are a lot of moving parts in WWE and it is far too much for any one person to keep track of. With so many things going on, it can be easy to forget that the wrestlers are what matter the most. Without them, there isn’t anything else going on because a wrestling show needs, you know, wrestling. Wrestlers move around just as much if not more than anything else, especially in WWE where there are so many platforms to work. WWE has to keep bringing in fresh talent and today, they have confirmed doing just that.
WWE has officially confirmed the signing of their newest class of Performance Center wrestlers, many of whom have been rumored to be signing for months. The class includes three wrestlers and a referee, with all of the wrestlers being women. The three women are Scarlett Bordeaux, Shotzi Blackheart, Indi Hartwell, all of whom have wrestled extensively on the independent circuit. Bordeaux is likely the best known of the trio, having become a star in Impact Wrestling earlier this year. The referee is Stephon Smith, who has mainly worked for Evolve. All four have reported to the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
You’ll get used to them. Check out some of the work from the three new wrestlers:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that has to happen every so often and it is interesting to see some of these names getting signed. The three of them are names that independent wrestling fans are going to be familiar with and that offers another audience. What matters most here is getting some fresh names under the WWE banner though, as they need to keep things moving one way or another. This is as good as anything else they can do and if they just have to bring in talent from other companies as they have for decades now, so be it.
Which of these names will have the most success? How soon will they be on NXT TV? Let us know in the comments below.
