WWE is aggressively going after independent wrestlers that can contractually leave. Internally, the word is that they want people that are considered coachable and they are being very strict with background checks. As shown in the past, it takes just one negative tweet for WWE to pass on a signing.
Also, they are specifically targeting names from Lucha Underground that can contractually leave. The biggest name so far to leave LU is Ricochet aka Prince Puma, but he’s not expected in WWE until later this year or early 2017. Some of the competitors in the Cruiserweight Classic will be offered deals and Kota Ibushi told Weekly Pro Wrestling that Triple H and Funaki called him before the tournament because they wanted to sign him. Ibushi had turned down their initial offer but eventually accepted the offer after they pushed harder.
