OUTSOURCING TOP AMERICAN TALENT?

Nu-Wrestling Evolution is a name that many might find themselves familiar with in the next six months. Why? Because the Italian outift is quietly becoming the place to be for former WWE talent released from their contracts. Furthermore, the company is certainly a dark horse to sign Chris Benoit, Christian or anyone else of major name value who becomes available in the immediate future.
Booked by Rikishi, now simply known as 'Kishi, the promotion is striking while the iron is hot as wrestling is red hot in Italy right now. Charlie Haas and Jackie Gayda are spending the majority of their time with the company, as are Rikishi, Vampiro, Test, Scott Steiner and the FBI (Polombo & Stamboli) who are over huge as the top babyfaces in the company doing their Full Blooded Italian gimmick. Matt Morgan and Mark Jindrak have either already started or will be soon. Because of the popularity of the WWE product and wrestling in general in Italy, the company can afford to and is paying big money to anyone with star value from the United States, as well as putting the stars up in amazing resorts and treating the wrestlers "like kings" as Charlie Haas has said. Nu-Wrestling Evolution is drawing strong houses houses and the sky seems to be the limit, so it wouldn't at all be suprising to see more high profile American free agents choosing this alternative over TNA or the Indies in the States. This is definitely something that should be kept an eye on in the next year or so, because there is a good chance that America could be outsourcing some of her bigger free agents if this company continues to grow as quickly as it has.
