El Generico Signs With WWE: More Indy Talent On The Way

It was reported last night by PWPonderings.com that independent wrestler El Generico was signed by WWE. The news has now been confirmed by multiple sources.

Generico has been pulled from this weekend’s Pro Wrestling Guerrilla event in California and could very well have wrestled his last match on the independent scene.

PWInsider is reporting that WWE signing El Generico is part of a broader company strategy to sign several of top independent workers. Specifically, WWE’s head of Talent Relations, Triple H, has “a number of names” on his radar. WWE will be actively perusing top independent talent in the coming months.

* MAJOR Returns & Debuts Planned for The ROYAL RUMBLE

    He looks like a cross between Shaemus, Daniel Bryant, and Sin Cara.

    I was hoping to see more from his feud with Steen!

  • Rhawk

    Shame we wont see much more of the Steen’Generico fued, but I had a feeling they wanted to move onto Steen/Lethal anyway.

    But regardless while Generico definetly has the charisma to be in the WWE, Im very sceptical as to how he’ll be treated. I mean will he keep the mask (I hope to God he has A mask at least), will be look strong in the WWE (since they love to water down anything that comes to them with more experience than is needed), will he be booked well? Who knows?

      Let’s be optimistic and hope.

  • pwnez

    I’m excited to see El Generico in the WWE. He could be successful as part of a tag team or as a singles wrestler. He has talent written all over him. I hope they let him keep his mask.


    Indie haters probably wanna kill themselves right now. Then by all means cause more are on the way

  • kquickstillsucks

    El Generico is the perfect name/character hopefully he is allowed to keep it. OR This could be Sin Cara’s replacement…Generico can speak English…I think ;)

    • Zachary Adder

      well considering he’s canadian i’d guess he can speak english

      • kquickstillsucks

        That was the joke kiddo

        • Zachary Adder

          ok.. so he’s a canadian playing a role of a mexican… you make a joke out of that?! 2 words: fucking. genius.

          • The Guest

            Canadians don’t speak English, they butcher it. Just stick to French, you poutine eating bastards.

            sacre bleu!

          • kquickstillsucks

            Does El Generico cut long English promos? Fucking genius indeed….

      Generico is way better than Cara, but Cara is a Latin superstar and Vinny Mac is not a dope.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rick-Yuhnke/100002079499044 Rick Yuhnke

      I sure hope they let Generico be Generico. If so, I do think he can sell the public. He is a great wrestler and is quite entertaining. Plus, guys like Cara prove you can be over without talking…

  • Guest

    And prepare for the ratings to drop even lower.

  • nightmare from hell

    finally Triple H is doing the right thing. Keep up the good work Hunter

  • Backstreet Bungalow

    Anyone who goes by El Generico is alright with me. I just hope they don’t make him into another useless comedic act like Santino. Where are all the dipshit indy haters at… I’m talking to you fireworks Ts

  • 7 year old boy

    This is my first time hearing about him. Is he any good IWC?

  • Mystery

    another future jobber

    Let’s hope they don’t screw with his character.On one hand he could be as successful as Punk,The Shield & Cesaro or he could end up like Awesome Kong,Maxine,Abraham Washington,Daniel Bryan(retarded yes/no crap) or Colt Cabana. Crossing my fingers here.

    • Guest

      Daniel Bryan is successful, Kharma would have successful and she quit WWE they didn’t fire her, Now Maxine should have waited 2 more months WWE had plans for her, AW messed up a bit, They totally messed up with C

      Daniel Bryan is successful, Kharma would have successful and she quit WWE they didn’t fire her, Now Maxine should have waited 2 more months WWE had plans for her, AW messed up a bit, They totally messed up with Colt Cabana though.

  • The Guest

    A lot of people are saying they want him to keep the name/mask. Well, I say this, which is more over, the gimmick or the man? I say the man. They can do something completely different with him and it would most likely work.

  • http://twitter.com/ConradKushman Conrad Kushman

    I really like what HHH is doing with NXT/Developmental. Keep up the good work WWE.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

    I’ll tell everyone something right now, i’m not marking out or shooting off but I’m 100% sure that he will keep his mask seeing as he said he wants to keep it and he is a guy like Rey Mysterio who will not be there without his mask, now his name might change to something else but if they have to change it i’d change it to El Generic it’s one letter off so no copyright and as far as the gimmick it should be the same as it has been but he can pull off any gimmick because he is good on the mic and he is great at wrestling,

    • DAX

      Fuck No. Davey cant sell for shit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rick-Yuhnke/100002079499044 Rick Yuhnke

      Davey is just another version of Chris Benoit. Yea, I said it, but he is similar in size and skill. I like him, but I wonder if the WWE would be interested…

    HHH’s kids may be in danger. Generico eats children afterall.

    New Jobbers YAYZ

  • Cool Night

    Yeah, keep em coming, Keep bringing them geeks to the WWE. Lets appeal to the nerdy audience that spend more time talkin about wrestling online and getting butthurt over petty issues than anything else. WWE has already one geek central with its cast of characters already. CM Punk, KING Geek. Nerdiest WWE champ in history, bores the hell out of the audience and gets invited to geeky events like comic con. AJ Lee looooves her video games! She’s admitted to being very very geeky. The guys that have no major play with the ladies think she’s hot because she’s “easier”. They don’t want to put effort; in fact they’d probably go right in for it if she opens her legs for them, because they’re all SIMPS and tricks!

    Then we’ve got R Truth who should be a thug kicking ass..no now he’s talking to invisible kids. Kane lost his balls and is stuck with some troll looking guy that likes to yell yes and no. Attitude era audience/ECW audience would have told that guy to “STFU” live on the air in unison by now, but not this geeky ass audience. lmao!! Damien Sandow speaks for himself, Cody Rhodes with that outdated mustache look, looks like a goober.

    Then you got Eve Torres, librarian looking chick that looks and acts dull everywhere she goes. Kaitlyn is a goof who loves mustaches and cheese. lol Anybody getting the message here? Anybody realizing what the WWE is becoming ? LMFAO

    Natalya should be doing bikini matches showing that hot ass , instead she’s farting and dancing with Khali. Prime Time Playas should be acting bad ass and thug, and they should be pimpin and ballin with Rosa Mendes. But naaa, PTP wasting their time losing matches and Rosa Mendes being wasted away with Carlito’s geeky ass brother and cousin whatever the hell Epico is..

    What else? John Cena talking about weiners, The Rock as cool as that dude is.. he’s being affected by this geek garbage too. “Cookie puss” lmao Rock hurry up do your thing and get out of there before you lose your cool factor fo REAL!

    LMAO WWE lost it big. They USED to be hard and bad ass, now all we got is this geeky clown shit.

    • ICEMAN

      I know exactly what he’s talkin about. WWE has become wack now because of all this nerdy type shit. I feel you dawg

  • Mr. Honesty


  • Cdeeznutz

    Checked him out on youtube, and i like this guy. Only thing is i think wwe is gonna weaken his wrestling style down because his moves are easy to botch. Also the way the guys were taking bumps landing on the back of their necks could be dangerous in wwe’s eyes so idk. He has TNA wrestling style. We will see.

  • Zachary Adder

    Generico in WWE is a very smart move, the guy knows how to get over with the fans. cant wait to see how they use him.
