Workout with WWE

Who will be the next World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) mega star?

WWE is looking for that special someone who will shine in the ring. The next John Cena? The next Rock? (kind of funny both those guys have ties to the area). The league held a tryout at IMG Academy in Bradenton. They are looking for talented former elite college athletes. That’s a good place to start.

There were a total of 30 athletes who participated in the tryout. One former WWE star known as Big E analyzed the talent.

He explained, “We’re putting them through the paces of rolling in the ring, hitting the ropes, doing the bumps, and see how they react, seeing how they learn day-to-day. But also, we’re seeing them on the microphone, seeing how their promos are. That’s a huge part of it. That’s what we do is having these larger-than-life characters.”

I did a story back in the day for CBS Studio 10 Morning Show and it featured the late Dusty Rhodes, also Steve Keirn, Norman Smiley and the Divas of Wrestling. It was amazing because they showed me what it was like to be a Diva.
