Over the course of the last few days word has come out that WWE is looking at offering contracts to several ROH talent when their ROH contracts expire. WWE decided to do this because they have realized that training wrestlers from scratch isn't the easiest thing in the world and so they have decided to bring in talent who already have training. Another reason is because they are planning on brining certain people to the Main Roster and want to replace them with top indie stars who are already having good matches much like the guys down in NXT are.
Now I do agree with the idea that this is bad for ROH because they could be losing some top talents and it could hurt the company tremendously. But taking the perspective I took when I was talking about Joe leaving TNA, sometimes it's good for talent who have done everything in the company and have nothing left to accomplish to move on to greener pastures somewhere else. With the amount of new, known, talent that have worldwide exposure that WWE has given to the independents it might be a fair trade.
Let me get this out of the way, as of this writing it seems as though the WWE's interest in The Briscoe Brother's have returned and Dem Boys seem like they are at the top of the WWE's list when it comes to ROH Talent. Looking back at the idea of people doing everything they can in one company and it being time to move on to somewhere new, I think the Briscoe's fall into that category. I can here many people right now saying why would you want to see the Briscoe's go to WWE and have their legacy destroyed. To those people I will say if your a fan of them you will want them to become the biggest stars they can which is sadly one thing they can't accomplish in ROH. Staying on the indies though it helps the indies isn't usually everyone's dream who gets into the wrestling industry.
Right now don't be alarmed because in my book it's rumors of who WWE is interested in and not, "Oh The Briscoe's are leaving ROH let the tour begin." No!! not yet at least. I have heard about this in various places, this might be wrong for me to say but I am not the reporting as I am not a dirt-sheet this is just my opinion. It is very likely that WWE may not just be taking a couple of contracts it likely depends on how many people they are looking at in reality it could be something similar to WWE taking from ECW back in the day.
