Out with the old, in with the new.
Yesterday WWE announced that it released Luke Harper, Sin Cara, Konnor and The Ascension’s Viktor. Despite cutting talent, it is being reported that the promotion is holding try outs this week at their performing center in Florida.
Zack Carpinelo is one of the athletes putting it on the line this week. Media buffs already know him as Jwoww’s current boyfriend; whose romance was showcased on this season of “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.” If he joins the company, this wouldn’t be the first time WWE sucked up an MTV reality star. As you know, The Miz originally appeared on the tenth season of “The Real World.”
Other noteworthy applicants include former Bellator Lightweight Champion Will Brooks, Titan Games’ Michael Evans and Kara Lazauskas and Steven Seagal’s daughter, Arissa LeBrock.
I find it interesting that WWE is shopping for new stars who already have a social media or pop culture following. Does internet fame equal talent? I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
