The roster grows. WWE has a roster with enough talent to fill up three weekly television shows, but those wrestlers have to be kept moving. At some point the roster is going to get a bit stale and needs some fresh blood, which is why WWE also brings in fresh talent every so often. Now they are doing that again, this time from other sports outside of professional wrestling.
PWInsider.com is reporting that WWE has signed two new stars to NXT. First is Alexis Gray, who was a track and field star at Texas Southern University, where she earned a degree in biology. Second is Ezekiel Balogun, a 6’6 former basketball player from the University of North Florida. There is no word on when either of them will officially start training at the Performance Center.
The two of them will have good training facilities. Check out the Performance Center:
Opinion: WWE has to do this every so often and they do have some success with bringing in stars from other sports to try their hand at wrestling. It isn’t the way that things need to go all the time but it does make sense to try and bring in some great athletes to see what they have. These two have some potential and it should be interesting to see what WWE can get out of them over the years.
