WWE reportedly held a round of tryouts for female talents this past week.
PWInsider is reporting that at least two of the women at the tryouts were some interesting names from the independent wrestling scene. According to the report, both Elayna Black and Lacey Ryan were spotted at the tryouts.
Elayna Black is mostly known for hew work with Warrior Wrestling, Zelo Pro Wrestling, and Game Changer Wrestling.
Lacey Ryan, however, is mostly known for being a part of the West Coast independence scene. She has worked for Championship Wrestling for Hollywood.
What is slightly interesting about the news of Black getting a tryout is the fact that she’s worked with AEW. She had appearances on AEW Dark and her last appearance for AEW was as part of a tag team match on Dark where she teamed with Leyla Hirsch against Brandi Rhodes and Red Velvet.
WWE has reportedly been reaching out to unsigned indie talents who have performed on AEW Dark. Many talents on Dark are free agents, which means that WWE can approach them.
Notably, it has been reported that British wrestler Ben Carter has signed with WWE and the company pursued him after a couple of strong performances on Dark.
