The Usos' Brother & More Report To WWE Performance Center

New trainees at the Performance Center

Could an addition be made to The Bloodline in the next few years?

WWE has revealed the latest set of Performance Center recruits, a group of six which includes Joseph Fatu, the younger brother of The Usos and the son of Rikishi. 

Also reporting to the Performance Center is Bobby Steveson, the brother of Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson. Steveson also wrestled at the University of Minnesota, the alma mater of Brock Lesnar, Shelton Benjamin and Bobby's brother, Gable. 

WWE added another amateur wrestling champion to their roster in Ben Buchanan. A former Alabama State high school champion, Buchanan was undefeated at 285-pounds during the 2019-2020 season. He is also the son of Bull Buchanan. 

A trainee of D-Von Dudley's, Joshua Dawkins has also joined the Performance Center, as have athletes Brady Booker and Jessica Woynilko. 

The latest Performance Center class comes at a time when WWE are changing how they recruit talent. The company has targeted top independent wrestling talent in recent years for NXT, but WWE will reportedly look at bringing in athletes in the future as talent the company can "mould like raw clay to become WWE stars."
