Although older superstars and legends are routinely appearing in main events these days, WWE continues to look for and develop new talent to fill out its roster. To that end, WWE.com posted the list of the newest recruits that have reported to the WWE Performance Centre.
Included in the class – the largest class of recruits in WWE history – are some familiar names, including: former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie, LA Knight (formerly, Eli Drake) who already debuted on TV earlier this month on the NXT: Vengeance Day pre-show; Christian Hubble (who has wrestled in numerous promotions, most recently in Impact under the name Blake Christian).
Many of the others have considerable experience in various North American promotions, and some have previously been seen on WWE programming in the past, including Zoey Stark, Gigi Dolin (previously, Priscilla Kelly), and Cora Jade (previously known as Brianna Coda), all of whom competed in either a Mae Young Classic or Dusty Rhodes Classic.
Other notable names are Bronson Rechsteiner, son of the legendary Rick Steiner, and big man Parker Boudreaux who has generated a lot of buzz online with comparisons being made to Brock Lesnar; in a tweet, no less than Paul Heyman seemed impressed by the 6-foot-4, 300-pounder.
His tweet is not a prediction. It’s a spoiler.
