• WWE Has A New Tactic Regarding Signing Indy Wrestlers
According to PWTorch, WWE is now looking to sign lesser known indy wrestlers. WWE officials want to sign these wrestlers before they can make a name for themselves and develop a fanbase.
By doing this, WWE officials believe they can get these wrestlers signed to contracts at a way lower price than what they would ask for if they were big indy stars.
WWE continues to sign as much talent as they can with the huge amount of money that’s coming in from their TV deals ($2 Billion+) for RAW & SmackDown (and don’t forget the Saudi Arabia money!).
