Sarita
Long known as one of the best female performers in Canada and Japan, Sarita has never really been on the radar for WWE. That has changed as of late, as the former TNA knockout spent a week at the WWE Performance Center, doing various tryouts for the company. A veteran performer like Sarita could really help out the divas division.

Vince McMahon
In a subtle move, WWE has begun phasing out the logo that they have been using for the last several years.

Michelle McCool
In a rather interesting move, Michelle McCool was spotted training at the WWE Performance Center this week. She was helping some of the developmental performers out.

Alberto Del Rio
While he continues to train hard at the WWE Performance Center, there has been some doubt as to how far Ricardo Rodriguez will be able to go as a wrestler.

March 11, 2014
Kevin Steen

Kenta Kobayashi
It has been a couple of weeks now since he was at the WWE Performance center, and it looks like a developmental contract will not be offered to Kenta Kobayashi. When he returned to Japan and downplayed the tryout, many were under the impression that the company was not interested in bringing the international star on board.
February 19, 2014
Nick Dinsmore
In a show of resilient he is, Yoshi Tatsu refuses to give up on his dreams of being on the main roster with WWE again. He has been spending extra time with Nick Dinsmore, one of the lead trainers for the company, at the WWE Performance Center, working on his stamina and gaining some pointers on how to present his character on television.

Knuckles Madsen

”There are quite a few trainers and classes. There are a lot of vultures flying around there who will take the move if they like it so I was careful. I just worked with the great trainers. At the performance center, there is a man there who is just great. Norman Smiley, he is a surgeon in the ring. It was incredible. I would love to say I could do The Big Wiggle so I am going to yeah, I can do the wiggle.”

Christopher Daniels

"I saw that he had the work ethic to make it work. A lot of times it's just a matter of getting that opportunity. It's funny that the example of what he is and what Daniel Bryan is, goes against the grain of what the WWE is trying to do. It seems very rare that they take guys off the indies anymore. You know they've got the Performance Center and they want their wrestlers to start from there at the bottom. It's almost like they're trying to grow wrestlers in a petri dish and then you look at guys like Punk, Bryan and Antonio Cesaro who worked all over the world on the independent scene and it seems like they're doing well for themselves and making it in the WWE system despite not being brought up in the WWE system."
