Ring of Honor stars Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards were not offered a WWE deal after their tryouts because Triple H felt they looked like Sami Callihan, Sami Zayn, Daniel Bryan or CM Punk, and WWE has enough “indie-looking” guys.
One WWE source said, “Triple H feels we have enough Tyson Kidds.”
While Richards and Edwards are currently at the WWE Performance Center for a week-long tryout, many fans have been wondering what led to WWE bringing them back. Word backstage is that William Regal went to Triple H and really fought for Richards and Edwards. He went on to explain that they are really good in the ring and deserved to get another look.
Many people backstage feel that this week-long tryout may be a precursor to Edwards and Richards being signed to a short, three-month deal.
The duo may be finishing up with Ring of Honor at the December 14th Final Battle event.
