With El Generico To WWE, Who's Next? By Stu Rodgers
Listening to the Still Real To Us podcast recently I heard the guys chatting about El Generico signing with the WWE and who they think will be signed up next if any are. Generico is one of a list of guys that have been plucked from the indies in recent years such as CM Punk (OK, a good few years ago now), Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan), Tyler Black (Seth Rollins), Jon Moxley (Dean Ambrose) and more recently PAC (Adrian Neville).
In saying that, there are very few if any wrestlers who break in who don't dream of going to the WWE and no matter how popular they are on the indies and Punk & Danielson were just that, the WWE I guess would of always been the pinnacle they were aiming for.
In a different style, Kevin Steen is often mentioned of maybe going to the WWE, he's not what was 'typical' WWE, he's not like PAC or Ricochet, he's not even like Punk, Black or Danielson but he does offer something unique because, he doesn't the look the part so much but man, can the guy wrestle or what? Steen has been over the years involved in some great matches both for ROH & PWG and he can offer a different aspect to what the WWE has now and I wrote above how the WWE is probably the pinnacle of most wrestlers careers Steen makes no bones about it, he is a massive WWE fan and would love to work there.
2013 is only just over 3 weeks in so we'll just have to see who if any get the chance to work in the WWE.
