- The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards won’t be back at the next set of WWE NXT tapings and they aren’t going to be offered a contract.
Apparently Triple H didn’t want t sign them after their tryout because of their size. The feeling is they are loaded with guys who aren’t big that can go so the mentality coming out of these tryout camps is that WWE is looking for guys who can headline WrestleMania in five or ten years.
A lot of people went to bat for Richards and Edwards with the feeling they should get a deal and several people pushed for them to go straight to the main roster. It’s said Triple H made the decision not to sign them after the NXT tapings where they lost to The Ascension.
