As previously reported, WWE NXT coach Robbie Brookside tweeted and deleted an announcement that former football player Tim Wiese would get a WWE tryout.
According to a source, Wiese was at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando last week. He was training and his tryout was picked up by the mainstream media. WWE is hoping to create a German superstar and Wiese has the right physique.
WWE already has German wrestler Axel Tischer in NXT but it’s believed his promos aren’t good enough for the role.
German TV announcer Sebastian Hackl, who is a former wrestler himself, was also in Orlando last week. Hackl works at the WWE Germany offices as the social media editor. He also helps with the mainstream media in the country.
