WWE Considering The Signing Of Two Top Free Agents

WWE’s roster is constantly changing. Despite having around 200 wrestlers across all of their brands, the company is always looking for new names to add, especially as some people get released and replaced.

Ever since Triple H took control over day-to-day operations, he has overseen the company’s hiring process. Under his direction, several wrestlers released under Vince McMahon returned, including Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman.

And while Triple H failed to capture Jay White while White was still a free agent, he’s still interested in going after other names still available.

Triple H wants to sign Tama Tonga and Richard Holliday to WWE

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE’s top two targets to sign are Bullet Club original Tama Tonga and MLW’s Richard Holliday.

“I don’t know if they will be signed but there has been talk internally in WWE of late about Richard Holliday because of the story of his beating cancer and in Tama Tonga, who there has been talk about for some time.”

There are different reasons why WWE wants to sign both of these men. In Holliday’s case, the company sees plenty of merit in his feel-good story of overcoming cancer. Holliday was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in September 2022 but is now in remission.

In Tonga’s case, WWE has been pursuing him for quite some time. Despite being a Bullet Club original, Tonga has found himself in the crosshairs of the stable’s new leader David Finlay, who beat Tonga at NJPW Wrestling Dontaku on May 3rd to win the NEVER Openweight Championship.

Recently it has been reported that Richard Holliday and other interesting names will be attending the latest WWE tryouts.
