Full Details On Last Week’s WWE Tryout Camp At The Performance Center

We’ve got an update on the recent tryout camp held at the WWE Performance Center last weekend.

In total, there were about 30 athletes that attended the camp, mostly comprised of independent wrestlers. Overall – the camp was considered a success, with WWE officials being impressed with the attitudes and work ethic of almost everyone.

According to multiple sources, the standouts were Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards. However, it should be noted that anybody who WWE does want to sign would first have to undergo medical testing and would not be signed for several months.

Other independent wrestlers in attendance were Joey Ryan, Tony DelFonzo, Sean Burke and Todd Hanson.

The WWE staffers evaluating the talent included Bill DeMott, Jim Ross, William Regal, Terry Taylor, Norman Smiley and Joey Mercury.

Jim Ross tweeted the following last week about the camp:

“Appreciate all the hard work at just completed tryout camp @WWE Performance Center past few days. WWE staff super. Good luck to all.”

“Great having some ex-military men in the latest @WWE tryout camp. It’s always uplifting to hear their stories. Real heroes.”

  • Jay Strongbow

    I wonder if Demott hazed them and made them wrestle naked on the first day, or if that’s reserved only for people that “make it”.

  • God’s Diamond

    Edwards and Richards were great in roh so I hope they get signed so I can say I knew they would be big since roh

  • Forceton Banfodder

    They got Sandow to fill in the mold for an updated Genius gimmick. They should bring in Joey Ryan for an updated Rick Rude gimmick.

        Ziggler’s pulling the updated Mr. Perfect gimmick.

        • butterpecs

          I always thought it was more of a Billy Gunn/HBK/Perfect hybrid thing.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            Something like that.

      u mean val venis gimmick

  • David Knapman

    Only chance Joey Ryan would have in the WWE would be as a manager or some kind of announcer. American Wolves on the other hand have a British Bulldogs kind of feel to them and would make a nice addition to the tag team division. After some time spent in NXT to develop some personality and polish.
