Football pros, collegiate grapplers highlight WWE Performance Center tryout

ORLANDO, Fla. — Thirty-two athletes, with backgrounds spanning the NFL, NCAA wrestling, mixed martial arts and other sports, reported to the WWE Performance Center today for a tryout.

The tryout, which takes place over three days, will be overseen by Performance Center Head Coach Matt Bloom.

“Because our next rookie class is already full of experienced in-ring workers and international diversity, this tryout is focused on athletes and entertainers from all over North America,” Canyon Ceman, WWE’s vice president of talent development, said. “We have made a special effort to target both elite football and amateur wrestling backgrounds for this tryout. We hope to round out the next incoming class of talent with a diverse set of world-class sports-entertainers.”

Among the prospects invited to this camp are:

* Blaize Cabell, a University of Northern Iowa heavyweight grappler and three-time NCAA tournament qualifier;

* Junior Aumavae, a 311-pound nose tackle formerly signed with the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys;

* Paul Cheng, a former first-round draft pick of the Canadian Football League-turned-MMA fighter;

* Demitrius Bronson, a running back formerly signed with the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks;

* Nathan Redwing, a 290-pound independent wrestler who played football at Peru State College;

* Arkady Unterleidner, an NPC bikini competitor who has trained under Brian Kendrick;

* Brian Waymire, a 6-foot-9 former Division I swimmer who attended the 2013 NFL combine;

* Yaseen Mudassar, a 300-pound, two-time All-American wrestler, who competes in the independent circuit as “Yaseen (The Persian) Machine”;

* Ashley Urbanski, an independent wrestler who was a 2015 Tough Enough finalist featured on last year’s WWE Network competition special.


Author’s Note: Looks to be an interesting line of talents here. I don’t know if any of them will make it, but I wish them the best.
