WWE is always on the lookout for new up-and-coming stars. Every year they host multiple tryouts to give wrestlers and athletes the opportunity to become Superstars.

Two-second generation wrestlers are looking to do just that.

Terrence and Terrell Hughes are the sons of Hall Famer and multiple-time Tag Team Champion, D-Von Dudley. Following in their father’s footsteps they are looking to become a part of WWE by impressing at the upcoming Hollywood tryouts.

The brothers perform as a tag team known as TNT or the Hughes Bros and have been plying their trade for various promotions, most notably AEW. Since 2020, the duo have participated on Dark several times.

Speaking to DJ and Tommy on The Run In Podcast, the brothers expressed their desire to attend the tryouts in Hollywood during WrestleMania weekend.

Terrence said, “Right now, we’re trying to conquer anywhere we can. We’ve had a few WWE tryouts already. We’ve had AEW Dark. We’re still going back to AEW Dark and we’re still in contact with the coaches. We email each other periodically. Wherever the best opportunity arises is where we would want to go.

For right now, we’re doing the indie thing to prove our name first. We’re still young and have time, at the same time, we’re still sending tapes, we’re in contact, they’re looking at us, they’re telling us what we should do, what we shouldn’t do, and they’re going to let us know when the next time is we’ll come back in,”

Terrell added,“I would like to get on the WrestleMania tryouts this year. We were talking about that. I’ve been sending tape over to WWE. I’ve been getting responses and getting feedback. I think they have a tryout after WrestleMania and my goal would be on that.

For AEW Dark, we’ve been getting some emails for it, but we’ve been having dates from Indies. We’ve been talking to Tony Khan every time we do the show and we get good feedback. This year would be a good year to take that next step and really get somewhere in terms of full-time with a company.”

D-Von recently announced his departure from the Stamford company. The highly-decorated star had worked as a producer and coach since 2016.
