WWE Scouting Talent at Major Independent Wrestling Event This Weekend?

0

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, NXT General Manager William Regal was spotted in attendance at this weekend’s PWG Battle of Los Angeles tournament, with other eye-witnesses claiming 205 Live Superstar Brian Kendrick was with him as well.

This is not actually an unusual situation, as WWE has talent scouts at all kinds of independent events throughout the year, and the annual BOLA tournament has built up an unmatched track record of finding up-and-coming names who are just on the verge of taking off.

Regal himself has been known to attend the event – in fact, Kevin Owens has told a story in interviews that he wanted to work with WWE for years with no means of communicating with anyone in the company, and it wasn’t until meeting the British legend at a PWG event that they begun the process of signing him to an NXT contract.
