As reported by Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens, a number of independent wrestlers were believed to be in attendance at the WWE Performance Centre for a tryout. The tryouts, however, were later canceled and those in attendance were then sent home. The men involved included the following; Alan Zapalac, Brady Pierce, Eric Gonzalez, Idris Abraham, Jake Logan, Jay Harris, Jessy Sahota, John Hartley, Juicy Finau, Lane McCloskey, Matrick Belton, Mr. Obnoxios, Nick Stanley, Rashaud Freeman, Rayo, Ricky Knight Jr, Sefa Fatu, and Shoot Taylor. The list of women reported includes Alex Garcia, Brittany Lauzon, Cali Young, Giovanna Eburneo, Heather Hudson, Jade Cargill Jarrah Floyde, Jenae Nicole, Jessica Woynilko, Kayla Inlay, Megan Gregory, Samantha Opida, Shannon Murray.

It also includes former Black and Brave Academy trainees Connor Braxton, 1 Called Manders, Travis Titan, and Joeasa. One of the most notable females to be a part of the invitation was Heather Monroe. Monroe is a graduate of the Santino Bros Academy. Another name fans are likely familiar with is John Skyler. Skyler has taken on various roles within the promotion as an extra or competing. He even had a role in the House Hardy Halloween special. Another interesting set of attendees is that both Terrence and Terell, the sons of D’Von Dudley were also believed to be in part of those invited.

At a time when several independent promotions upcoming events up in the air, the WWE is still holding tryouts. Fans should also be keeping an eye out for Sefa Fatu. Fatu is the younger brother of Jimmy and Jey Uso. With a look and feel not unlike his other brothers, Sefa will soar through the air with the greatest of ease. Michael notes that Riveria, Cargill, and Garcia are taking part in their second tryout in less than a year. Readers may remember that Karissa Rivera was the woman who revealed herself to be Bobby Lashley’s ‘first wife’. It is unfortunate that the tryout was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The independent wrestlers that came out for the WWE tryout will hopefully be granted a callback soon.
