WWE Eyeing 3 Top Ring of Honor Talents
WZ has learned this evening, according to a WWE source, that the company is very interested Ring of Honor stars Moose, Adam Cole, and Jay Lethal.
Even though Lethal just became ROH Champion, WZ was told his contract is close to expiring with no future deal on the table at this time. Moose just announced he signed a new deal with ROH, and turned down offers from both WWE and Global Force Wrestling.
As noted, with regards to WWE, the company wanted to bring Moose in as a contestant on Tough Enough, as a male “ringer” on the show. The company would not guarantee that Moose would be offered a contract if he didn’t win Tough Enough, but said the possibility existed.
Interestingly, in a new interview with The News Hub, Moose had the following to say about a possible future in WWE:
“I’ve had tryouts with them [WWE] actually more than the one but I’ve had tryouts with them and it was just one of those things where I just felt comfortable with where I was at. I’m not saying that WWE is not somewhere I wouldn’t want to work at some point in my career because it is. Every wrestler in the world would tell you that. That the WWE is somewhere they would want to work at, at some point in their career. But I felt comfortable staying where I was currently at. I’m not saying there they even offered anything, I’m just saying that it’s just one of those things where I looked at what I had in front of me and where I wanted to go I felt that right now that staying with Ring of Honor was the best choice for me. Like I said, not that WWE ever offered me anything because they didn’t. With what I had in front of me and the choices and the options available to me, staying in Ring of Honor was the best possible choice.”
