This is new. WWE is the biggest wrestling promotion in the world and that means they are going to be doing some things that other promotions are unable to do. It does not mean that they will always make sense though and sometimes the promotion will be mocked for what they try to do. They have a new idea now and I’m not sure how well it is going to be received.
WWE has announced that they are now accepting resumes from potential wrestlers via TikTok. The advertisement asks for wrestlers from any kind of athletic background with any level of experience. WWE is asking for wrestlers with the following qualifications:
• World-class athleticism
• Size, flexibility, strength, & agility
• Personality & charisma
• Global appeal & diversity
• Coachability, work ethic, & professionalism
There is no word on how long the application will be available or how many wrestlers WWE is hoping to sign through the process.
This could lead somewhere. Check out some new talents making their debuts:
Opinion: I’m not sure what to think of this, but it is a little odd to see that WWE is asking for applications from TikTok. That sounds like the kind of thing you would do for a revival of Tough Enough rather than something for a run of the mill application. If nothing else, the amount of non-serious applications will be insane, though I could certainly go for seeing some of the worse ones. Maybe this works, but it seems a little out there.
What do you think of the idea? Will it work? Let us know in the comments below.
