WWE developmental signee Demitrius Bronson told MyNorthwest.com back in August that there’s one problem with him joining the company. “I don’t know how to wrestle,” the former NFL Player said on August 10. Despite this, Bronson doesn’t think it will take him long to climb the ladder to WWE. “My goal is to be on there within a year, if not less,” Bronson stated last week prior to his orientation.
Bronson also stated in the interview that he didn’t know that Triple H attended his WWE developmental tryout. “I’m glad I didn’t notice he was there or I probably would have been nervous,” Bronson said. “But he is bald now. I didn’t know.” Read more at Mynorthwest.com.
Powell’s POV: Wow. While the bald comment is odd, you can’t blame the guy for being naive when it comes to the challenge he’s facing because he’s walking in cold. Hopefully someone has or will explain to him how unrealistic it is to think that a person who doesn’t know how to wrestle will actually find that level of success so quickly. Bronson played in the NFL but was far from a notable name. He’s also 5-9 and 215 pounds. In other words, he doesn’t enter with star power, nor does he possess the type of size that might tempt WWE to rush his development. The story also notes that Bronson was training in Florida with the hope of receiving another NFL tryout when he was contacted by a WWE talent scout.
