Backstage News from WWE’s Recent Tryout Camp

– Names being listed for last week’s WWE tryouts in Orlando at the WWE Performance Center include ACH, Arya Daivari (younger brother of Shawn Daivari), David Starr, Kevin Steen, Michael Elgin, Rocky Romero, Roderick Strong, Ronny Reeves, Willie Mack and Zane Dawson. Names confirmed to have worked the camp are Dawson, Steen, Strong and ACH.

Apparently Steen and Strong did well with Strong being the star of the camp, both from an athletic standpoint and officials were impressed with his speaking ability.

No word yet on who will be offered contracts but WWE usually informs talents within 4-6 weeks.

    omg steen in wwe. i dont even know how that would work he would completly destory wwe image that u have to be ripped to be an athlete even though steen is an amazing wrestler. if wwe can see past him how could they release hero atleast hes was in shape lol steen is a fat lazy hard hitting asshole who just happens to be a great wrestler but doesnt apply to pg era at all. so i would like to see if wwe lets him be him and embrase what makes steen so popular or they gonna try to make him cookie cutter

    strong would be out of place too. in the indys he can do all kinds of backbreaker but those are average men where the wwe is full of giants lol his chops could get him notice but hes not so “strong” compared to most guys
