WWE’s rather aggressive talent signing policy made all kinds of headlines towards the end of last year as the company did their best to snap up every indy talent with a modicum of steam behind their name.
The inception of All Elite Wrestling has seen a myriad of wrestlers decide against joining the WWE Performance Center, with WWE looking further afield for the stars of tomorrow.
The two latest names to join the PC arrive to WWE from Saudi Arabia, with Hussain Aldagal and Faisal Kurdi the two names to potentially remember.
“Kurdi and Aldagal were selected from nearly 30 athletes who took part in the Jeddah tryout. That was the same tryout attended by current NXT Superstar Mansoor, who won the 50-Man Battle Royal at WWE Super ShowDown,” a report on WWE.com states.
“Kurdi boasts a background in amateur grappling, Muay Thai boxing and mixed martial arts, and has placed in championship competitions in the Middle East. He stands 5-foot-8 and weighs 182 pounds.
“The 6-foot-3, 211-pound Aldagal has previous athletic experience in volleyball and bodybuilding. Outside of his athletic endeavors, he is also a civil engineer.”
