Report from WWE's Recent Tryout Camp - Edwards & Richards Stand Out, Talent Judges, More

- Independent stars Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards were said to be the standouts at the WWE tryout camp that ran from August 28th until August 30th at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando. Other wrestlers at the camp included Joey Ryan, Tony DelFonzo, Sean Burke and Todd Hanson. There were 30 athletes in all, mostly independent wrestlers and a few others that had been recruited in. Overall, the attitudes of most and the work ethic were said to be good.

Reports are that Edwards was the most impressive, at least during the first day. The impression is that Richards and Edwards have a very good shot at being signed by WWE but that's not official and probably wouldn't happen for a few months. The guys that worked this camp, if any do get signed, they likely won't report to work until January, and that's if they can pass all medical tests.

Those judging the talents included Norman Smiley, Joey Mercury, Terry Taylor, William Regal, Gerald Brisco and Jim Ross. The camp was ran by Bill DeMott.
