According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE are reportedly ready to limit the maximum age range of their future signees to thirty years old.

Following the announcement of their last performance class which included former NWA star Eli Drake who is 38, former IMPACT talent Taya Valkyrie who is 37 years of age and Anthony Henry who is 36 and will perform under the name Duke Hudson, it has been reported that the company are now “very aware of the aging aspect of their roster.”

In the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote that he had become familiar with a “new doctrine” for future signings to WWE developmental that states any incoming talent must be “under the age of 30.” The only exception the company will allow from here-on-out is if the wrestler is a known name from outside the promotion or if they exhibit “really good potential.”

While the wrestling giant looks to fills its ranks with fresh and young up and coming talent who will hopefully be a main attraction in years to come and sign less stars over their new age limit, the latest class of WWE recruits – which was also their largest to date – did include young guns Parker Boudreaux (22), Bronson Rechsteiner (23), Cora Jade (20), Gigi Dolin (23) and Zoey Stark (27).
