    REPORT: WWE is no longer scouting independent talent

    Seems dumb to cut-off every indie talent, especially when there's still guys under 30 and tall in the indies.

    Gonna be a lot of growing pains…you either have a bunch of Romans and Bianca Belairs on the way or a bunch of Nathan Jones and Kelly Kelly’s on the way.

    Makes sense. If they want people to fit their style, may as well doing it from a blank slate.

    They're all legit Mark nerds that are just happy to be there. Vince has the right mindset here. He's trying to get stars and throwing work rate in the bushes. Work rate is super overrated. Vince should be hiring anyone over 6 feet tall with charisma though.

    Vince is going to still grab independent talent that has a good look like he always has but still start getting the performance center a better turnout

    I mean, it makes sense. Nowadays the "indy talent" is already working NWA, ROH, Impact or AEW.

    There aren't new people with big momentum in small companies so no point in scouting there if they can just do tryputs that fit their needs.

    The one thing they should change is IF an indy guy makes a name for him or herself, they could sign them and just put them on the main Foster. No more "teach him at the PC" for people that don't need it.

    All of their top talent right now were well known/established Indy/TNA stars. The only guys they've developed from scratch recently were Roman and Big E. Their track record is pretty poor, and this honestly sounds like a pretty stupid idea. But maybe they'll get lucky and get another 02/03 OVW class :patrice:

    Football was always a good feeder system for wrestling, catching those guys that barely missed playing in the NFL or washed out early for whatever reason. Football players tend to have natural charisma / shyt talking ability.

    They’ve gotta be mindful tho, those same guys didn’t have MMA also as an option like they do now.

    The Bellas :hubie:

    Not who everyone would think of first, but they got a reality TV show out of the company and are both in the Hall Of Fame. By the company's current metrics they're stars :manny:

    I still think he's super fukked up for the way he treated Lio Rush, but Mark Henry discovered Bianca Bel Air, Jade Cargill and Braun Strowman. He might have been their best bet as a scout if they were going all the way in the 'non-worker' direction.
