The latest set of WWE tryouts may have been canceled due to the coronavirus but the names that were set to attend are still newsworthy.
Zak Zodiac and Ricky Knight Jr., brothers of Paige, were both scheduled to attend. The brothers are perhaps best known for being portrayed in the movie Fighting With My Family. The movie focused on Paige making it to the WWE but a large portion of the movie was dedicated to Zak not being signed.
Had the tryouts gone ahead, they would have had another chance at their dream. Hopefully, in time, the opportunity will still come.
Paige was calling for this to me like a year ago. Begging for them to tag in NXT UK. https://t.co/TyrHgBAx7f

Also among the hopefuls were a number of The Black and The Brave Wrestling Academy graduates. For those who don’t know, this is the wrestling school run by Seth Rollins and Marek Brave. Connor Braxton, 1 Called Manders, Travis Titan, and Joeasa were confirmed by the school’s Twitter account.
