Richard Holliday WWE Performance Center

While Jade Cargill is said to have visited the WWE Performance Center this week ahead of signing with the company, several other notable names are partaking in WWE's latest rounds of tryouts from the PC this week.

Of those taking part in WWE's first batch of tryouts since this year's SummerSlam weekend, the most recognisable name is likely Richard Holliday.


Having spent several years with MLW, Holliday was at once a part of the Dynasty with MJF and Alexander Hammerstone, and later feuded with Hammer over the MLW World Championship. Sadly, the 30-year-old was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin's Lymphoma in September of last year, but Holliday returned to the ring in June after it was announced his cancer was in remission.

The self-proclaimed Most Marketable Man in Wrestling was actually backstage for an episode of AEW Collision at the end of July, although WWE's interest in Holliday has been rumoured since earlier this year.
