From the sounds of thing, Kenta Kobayashi doesn't seem like he is going to be signing a developmental contract with WWE after all. He has given the impression that he will be sticking with Pro Wrestling NOAH for the time being. Kobayashi has also downplayed the tryout by stating that it was informal.
After doing a tryout with WWE this week, Kenta Kobayashi is headed back to Japan, where he will be making a big announcement at the next Pro Wrestling Noah show, in regards to his future plans in the industry. Many believe that he will be signing a developmental deal and moving to the USA.
On the Kevin Steen Show, Davey Richards was asked about his tryout with WWE. The newest TNA star stated that he did not want to sign the developmental deal because he was not keen on moving to Orlando. He also revealed that he turned down the contract, as opposed to being rejected as rumored.
Colt Cabana, a good friend of CM Punk in real life, was given another tryout not too long ago with WWE, but the company opted not to sign him to a contract just yet. It now appears that he is being considered for a possible role on the upcoming WWE Network.
Japanese star Kenta Kobayashi, the wrestler who made the Go 2 Sleep finisher internationally famous, could be signed to a developmental deal with WWE soon. He was recently spotted at the WWE Performance Center, where he was given a tryout by officials.
Maria Kanellis is the latest professional wrestler to do a podcast show. She is doing the show with her fiancee and ROH star Mike Bennett, in order to raise their stock with wrestling fans. The couple has managed to get their show distributed through iTunes.
"TNA called me twice this year, I think they're a great company but I'm loving my time in ROH and I'm definitely happy with my fiancée. Who knows if that will ever change, but I wish TNA all the best in the world, I think the girls there are tremendous."
"I'm kind of an underground Paul Heyman girl and he is what really inspired the ditsy character, he really inspired me to do the things that I did at WWE. I'm an admirer of his work, I think what he has done with so many guys and throughout ECW was incredible. When I was in OVW I just watched him as he helped CM Punk every day, Punk was already incredible but then Paul Heyman kind of pushed him over the edge and gave him that opportunity on ECW to be who he is today."
