How Did ROH Stars Get Another WWE Tryout?, More on Their Future

Posted by DailyWrestlingNews.com on Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Triple H

- We noted before that Ring of Honor stars Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards were not offered a WWE deal after their tryout because Triple H felt they were built from the same mold as guys like Sami Callihan, Sami Zayn, Daniel Bryan or CM Punk, and WWE has enough “indie-looking” guys. A WWE source said, “Triple H feels we have enough Tyson Kidds.”

With Richards and Edwards currently at the WWE Performance Center for a week-long tryout, many fans have been wondering what led to WWE bringing them back. Word is that William Regal went to Triple H and really fought for Richards and Edwards, explaining that they are really good in the ring and deserved to get another look.

Many feel that this week-long tryout may be a precursor to Edwards and Richards being signed to a short three-month deal. The duo may be finishing up with Ring of Honor at the December 14th Final Battle event.

  • Fast Eddie

    Triple H wants nothing but huge steroid behemoth wrestlers like him. And I understand, I get it.WWE Performance Center and all, Matt Morgan should get a shot. Also Richards and Edwards deserve a shot. Then again so do Dewey Barnes and Cheeseburger.

    • Joshua Nixon

      WWE is supposedly looking for crusierweights for their crusierweight only show when the network launches sometime next year. Besides they need for workhorses like Richards and Edwards to compete with the likes of Punk, Bryan, Bourne, Kingston, Zayn, Kidd, and Callihan. Like Logan said they need to separate the shows and go back to the Raw and Smackdown exclusive brands. Main Event could be the third brand while NXT continues to serve as the developmental league where the brands can annually draft talent for their roster.

  • Logan

    They need to re-seperate the brands, so that more of these up and coming talents have more tv time and exposure to get over.

    • Joshua Nixon

      I agree Logan, it would allow other talent to get more tv time and exposure to the WWE Universe. RAW brand should get the wwe title, intercontinental title, share the tag team titles and Divas Championship with Smackdown. Smackdown exclusive titles should be the WorldHeavyweight Championship, United States Championship, and either the LightHeavyweight or Cruiserweight championship
