A fan revealed the following on Twitter:
Just how broke-brained do you have to be to throw out MANSOOR DID 9/11 as a pitch in a WWE creative meeting? It’s super racist, of course, but it would also very obviously rock the boat WRT WWE’s partnership with Saudi Arabia to have a Saudi wrestler’s character BE BEHIND 9/11.
The world of professional wrestling has been buzzing with rumors about the WWE’s hiring practices, with some reports suggesting that the company is in the midst of a hiring freeze. However, Ringside News has recently confirmed that these rumors are false, and that the WWE is actually in talks with several wrestlers right now.
Despite recent corporate changes and the potential merger with UFC, the WWE is still committed to bringing in new talent. While there have been reports that the company passed on hiring names such as Jay White, AOP, and Naomi, the WWE has denied that a hiring freeze is in effect.
According to a tenured member of the WWE creative team, the company is actively seeking out new wrestlers, and has even been in talks with a half dozen people recently. This news should be welcome to fans who have been concerned about the WWE’s hiring practices, and who may be eager to see new faces on their screens.
As the world of professional wrestling continues to evolve, it is clear that the WWE is committed to staying competitive and bringing in fresh talent. Whether through mergers or new signings, the company is determined to stay at the top of the industry, and fans can expect more exciting changes in the months and years to come.
Reports keep coming out about WWE's "hiring freeze."
Can confirm that WWE is not in a hiring freeze. They passed on every wrestler so far for different reasons.
We were told that if WWE wants someone, they will sign them and they are talking to "a half dozen people right now."
