WWE is always on the search for their next top Superstar and Vince McMahon may have already found the worthy individual capable of becoming the next big thing in the business.
According to WrestlingNews.co, second-generation wrestler Cal Bloom is being lined up for a major future at the top of WWE.
Cal is the proud son of former WWE star Wayne Bloom (Beau Beverly). The young athlete used to play football at the University of Central Florida as a tight end for the UCF Knights. WWE signed him to a developmental contract in March 2019.
As an ex-footballer, Cal boasts of tremendous size and athletic look, thus making himself an instant favorite of Mr. McMahon. The CEO of WWE is most certainly sold on Cal’s physique given his love for big guys.
“I’ve heard from people in WWE who have seen Cal Bloom’s training at the Performance Center and have said that he is someone who can be a main event Superstar in the next couple of years. ‘Everyone is comparing him to a young Edge,’ said one WWE source. ‘He is rough around the edges but he has something and Vince thinks he can be a big deal…’ The coaches at the Performance Center have also had good things to say about him.”
Bloom wrestled Sheamus in a losing effort on the April 10th episode of Friday Night SmackDown. It was the first time that Mr. McMahon had seen the young athlete in action. Sheamus could only get that so much from his victory but the loss cemented Bloom as a promising main eventer in the eyes of Mr. McMahon.
Now that Bloom is on Mr. McMahon’s radar, it’s safe to assume that he would be ready to jump straight into the big picture in the next couple of years.
