Backstage Story on Tensai, WWE Interested In CMLL Star, Dawson

– As noted, WWE released NXT announcer Tony Dawson this past week. Word is that Dawson was a nice guy but didn’t have any passion for wrestling. He and Tom Phillips were hired around the same time and the feeling was Phillips had passed him by.

– WWE has shown interest in Mexican star Volador Jr. The CMLL promotion is apparently aware of their interest.

– It’s being reported in Japan that Tensai was making $100,000 per year with New Japan Pro Wrestling and to lure him away, WWE offered $400,000. It’s also being reported that WWE is trying to sign NJPW stars Karl Anderson and Prince Devitt.

    Karl Anderson is super boring. Don’t care for him one bit. Devitt and Volador Jr. are awesome.

    $400,000 for just dancing? I’d do it

    If WWE is interested in Karl Anderson & Prince Devitt, they should also have a look at / give try outs to the other members of The Bullet Club, Tama Tonga & Bad Luck Fale.
    Volador Jr is a good luchador, but as far as I am aware, he speaks limited English if he speaks any at all.
    WWE should seriously try and sign Hijo del Fantasma, who is a good size at 5’11” & around 200lbs, can mat wrestle as well as fly, and a major plus is that he can speak English fluently due to his degree in International Relations.
