Major rumor on WWE scouting for new talent

Last updated

A major rumor is making the rounds regarding WWE and their scouting for new talent in the next few months into 2023 and beyond.

According to a new rumor/report from Xero News, the company has been heavily scouting on the independent scene recently.

“Past few weeks WWE has been scouting the indies most noticeably DEFY and PWG. WWE will be going more heavy on this early 2023” the site claimed.

It’s worth noting that this rumor from Xero News is just that, a rumor, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

Keeping an eye on talent on the independent scene was one of the strategies that Triple H previously employed to build the Black and Gold version of NXT.

Whether WWE actually decides to actually run with the idea of bringing in some more ‘indie darling’ type of talent remains to be seen, but it would certainly make sense to help bolster NXT with some quality and experienced names from the indies.
