News on WWE's Recent Tryouts Before SummerSlam Having More Injuries Than Usual


-- At WWE’s recent tryouts in Nashville during SummerSlam week, 50 athletes from 47 colleges attended but according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, “nobody really stood out” owing to the fact that most of the athletes had never been in a ring before.

-- According to one person, at first glance, none of the participants seemed like they would be a future superstar and it could lead to it being the last time WWE has a tryout with only college athletes, perhaps reverting to having independent wrestlers there as well. Still, WWE ended up signing 14 of the 50 athletes to contracts. The report added that due to the inexperience of the people trying out, there were a few concussions and shoulder injuries, probably the most amount of injuries they’ve ever had in a tryout.
