WWE Summerslam: WWE has started the hunt for the next generation of superstars with WWE Tryouts ahead of WWE Summerslam. The first day of tryouts held at MGM Grand in Las Vegas witnessed aspiring male and female performers showcasing their skills under the watchful eyes of WWE coaches like Albert A-Train, NXT Superstar Samoa Joe, and NXT General Manager William Regal.
Nearly 40 talents were invited for the tryouts, including one athlete Jefferies, 22, who got selected for WWE Performance Center Tryouts in Orlando, Florida. He shared his experience by saying,
“I feel so blessed right now. Triple H just looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘We want to offer you a contract and move you to Orlando in the next 30 days.- This is fricking cool. I’m at a loss for words. I literally broke down crying and I don’t like to cry in front of anyone and here I am crying in front of everyone over there. I’m extremely grateful right now.”
