I didn't know that, but from seeing him in TNA, I could tell Eli Drake patterned his promo style after The Rock, with a little bit of Steve Austin thrown in.

His out of the ring personality and approach to the business is similar to Austin's as well. Old school and get noticed. Both were mentored by Paul Bearer/Percy Pringle too. However Drake has never, ever done anything for me as a wrestler as dry as dry can be. Works a dated 90s style rather than the timeless one. There were brief time periods I thought Ken Kennedy might become a comfortable main eventer in WWE never had a similar moment with Drake.

I can only imagine that the WWE interest is based on his catchphrase-heavy promo style and his 'Fact of Life' shtick. I'm sure they see him as a personality.

Also, Hero has to be wrestling in NXT, I'm sure he could train but I can't imagine him only doing that.

Gargano and Ciampa calling themselves Team DIY while working for wwe is sort of depressing.

Zeuxis again and Jayme Jameson.

Jayme dropped the SHINE tag belts Friday and by all accounts seems to be signed. Her tryout was the invite only one with Kimber and Heidi.

Have you already followed their various social media accounts and privately messaged them that "I'm here if you need a friend or someone talk to"? Or has your line changed?
