    WWE looking to sign major ROH/former TNA stars

    Post by Joe5150 on Sun Jun 21, 2015 11:44 pm

    According to WrestleZone and other sites, WWE is trying to sign:

    ROH World & TV Champion Jay Lethal(His contract is up and ROH is not offering him anything)
    Adam Cole
    Moose(He just signed a new deal, so he may be off the tablt, but I'm sure WWE could buyout his deal)
    Gunner(Who just left TNA over the last couple days)

    They are also interested in other un-named big time Indy/TNA/ROH talent. Looks like Triple H & William Regal are really going out of their way to make NXT a serious alternative brand geared towards smart fans/IWC.

    There's no way ROH just put both titles on Lethal and then don't offer him a new deal.

    Could be a 'thank you' run. They've done it in the past with guys like CM Punk. If it's true they aren't offering him anything new, he'll likely lose both belts at the next PPV.

    Good PR. He's a war hero.

    The same people who made one legged war hero Mike Hayes do bullshit cardio drills that made his leg and bones bleed and make him quit Tough Enough?

    Gunner fits the mold of what they typically look for. Big, muscular guy with a look and presence. He's definitely lacks in charisma and is a fairly average wrestler. But with him being a military veteran during his time in the Marines, he can make for a great ambassador for the company with all of the PR work and outreach programs they're involved in.

    Major stars these are not.

    Jay Lethal is probably the hottest free agent. He'd be big star on NXT now that it's not gonna be developmental anymore and alternative 3rd brand.(Plus, making Evolve the new farm system)

    Gabe has done it. The current ROH staff has not.
