• “WWE Recruits People That Have Never Watched Wrestling & Don’t Care About It” – AEW Wrestler
AEW wrestler Wardlow was the guest on this week’s AEW Unrestricted podcast, where he recalled his WWE tryout, and revealed that WWE hires ex-NFL athletes or college wrestlers, and not real pro-wrestlers.
Below is what he said:
“I know people know that I did have a [WWE] tryout, and I smoked that tryout. I was literally the only dude there in a suit. It was mind blowing. Dudes are there in shorts and t-shirts. That’s because they’re not recruiting wrestlers. They’re recruiting ex-NFL athletes or college wrestlers, people that have never watched wrestling [and] don’t care about wrestling.
The comments these people were making made me sick to my stomach that they were there getting an opportunity. Of course, my roommate, he’s like, ‘Man, I’ve never even watched wrestling. I don’t even like it.’ I’m just like, ‘Get out of my room. Why are you here?’ And that was his second tryout. These people are getting multiple chances.”
Wardlow didn’t pass his tryout, but WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle did pull some strings for him and tried to convince him to sign with WWE, but he chose AEW instead.
