WWE continues to recruit
Most of these athletes were selected during the last tryouts that took place over the SummerSlam 2022 weekend.
Regarding these provinces, Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer said: "Apparently this most recent series of WWE tryouts is It was the audition set where a lot of NIL folks showed up trying to get contracts and no independent wrestlers were allowed.
Rumors are circulating that this is probably the last time this is happening. They aren't getting rid of the NIL Program, but this idea of no indie wrestler, with all NIL wrestlers like Lash Legend and Ivy Nile and people like that, didn't work.
The point of this is that there have been a lot of injuries in this series of auditions: there have been several concussions, there have been a lot of people who have proven that they have been injured." According to a recent report from WrestleVotes, Triple H was not behind the idea of the faction in his early days as the Chief Content Officer of the company: "I know back in late July or early August, whenever this whole shift happened, from what I was told Hunter wasn’t really cool with Judgement Day.
Not personally, but he just didn’t like the idea. But since he’s grown behind it, and I think that they’re going to be around for longer than anticipated."
