IMC Academy Set To Host WWE Tryouts This Week

WWE is heading to IMG Academy this week.

According to a report from Sports Illustrated, World Wrestling Entertainment will set up shop in Bradenton, Florida this Wednesday and Thursday, where the company will host a tryout.

Around 30-35 athletes will partcipate in the tryout.

“There are countless examples of top talent that came into the business via college sports, but there hasn’t always been a system built out. That’s what we’re trying to create here, a true talent development pathway into WWE for college athletes. We want a clear calendar. Moving forward, we’re going to emulate what we’ve done in 2022. It’s really important there is a clear schedule, as college athletes have so many options. For wrestlers on the independents, that system is in place and that pathway to WWE is well known, so our resources are allocated to building a new pathway to collegiate sports. We’re just scratching the surface. We’ve been working on this for a year, and it’s going to take years, but we’re growing. We’re adding quality and depth, and the work is just starting with college athletes nationwide.”
