32 athletes and entertainers in 3-day tryout at the WWE Performance Center

32 athletes and entertainers from all over the U.S. are at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida for a three day tryout for a potential WWE developmental deal.

“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.”

The most notable invited individuals include: 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”; and Ashley Urbanski, an independent wrestler who was a 2015 Tough Enough finalist featured on last year’s WWE Network competition special.
