Silas Young could be heading to the WWE soon

Silas Young has been one of Ring of Honor’s top talents for quite some time, feuding with some of the company’s biggest stars over the course of his six-year run there.

During his time in ROH, he’s captured the company’s TV Title twice, defeating Kenny King for the belt on both occasions. Young is probably best known for his feuds with Dalton Castle and current Ring of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal.

However, it seems that The Last Real Man might be looking into other companies in the near future. Young revealed on Wrestling Inc‘s WINCLY Podcast that his ROH contract is up at the end of 2018.

Yeah, there’s a lot of [ROH] guys whose contracts are up at the end of the year. There’s nothing set in stone, there’s nothing that I heard or anything like that. But wrestling’s one of those funny things where you never know what happens… a lot of decisions are made during the 11th hour.

WWE’s had a thing in the past couple of years where they’ve been signing a lot of talent up. My contract is up at the end of the year. I’m not opposed to talking to either side. When it comes down to it, it’s a business at the end of the day. You’ve gotta go with what’s best for you and your family.

Young went on, saying that he loves Ring of Honor, and feels that there’s more he’d like to accomplish there before he leaves. That being said, Silas Young is 39 years old, and there may not be many more chances to go to the WWE in the future should he turn them down now.

    All those names were already established on a large stage. There’s a
    big difference between re-signing a 40 year old talent that has been
    with the company for years and is known by the audience or signing a
    nearing 40 talent, but is known in this country and other countries and
    signing someone only known for ROH. I’m not being mean to the guy
    because he’s older, I’m just saying from a business perspective, you
    sign the guy, have him in NXT for 18 months or so, then you call him up
    to the main roster when he’s pushing his mid-40’s, then what? How many
    years are you going to get out of the guy? 3? 4? Is it worth the time
    and money investing in him? Or would a better investment be going out
    and recruiting some college athlete that is around 20, have him in NXT
    for 3 or 4 years and then he’s ready for the main roster before he hits
    30 and could be a real player for you for years like a Cena or an Orton.

    Why would they want a near 40 year old? Well you mean like AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe, Hideo Itami, Karl Anderson, Finn Balor & Nakamura? Or the guys they re-signed like Lesnar, The Hardys & Rey Mysterio?

    Hey another extremely overrated indy guy. He’s an average talent at best.

    I am 100% certain that is something the WWE would want to do, and Silas Young is a great guy to have in that position. The question is…does he think it’s worth it? It’s not glorious, but he could probably end up with a pretty good position as a trainer at the Performance Center once he retires if he goes there.

    Why would WWE want a 40 year old? Do they want another Chris Hero type to just stay in NXT and put over new guys? I’m not knocking the guy, but I’m not sure it’s worth WWE’s time to try and get this guy over on the big stage after spending 18 months in NXT.
