Could this second generation talent soon be heading to Raw or SmackDown?

With WWE having been recently assessing talent prior to Raw and SmackDown ahead of potential main roster call-ups, one person who wrestled a dark match this past Friday, as per Wrestling Inc, was Cal Bloom.

Bloom is the son of former AWA star Wayne Bloom. Alongside Mike Enos, Wayne was one half of the Destruction Crew tag team - or, to WWE fans, Bloom and Enos were better known as Beau and Blake, the Beverly Brothers.

As for Cal, he worked a dark match at Friday's North Little Rock, Arkansas edition of SmackDown. There, he actually picked up a singles win over Austin Theory.


The second generation Bloom signed with WWE in March 2019, and to date he's got two televised matches under his belt; those being short defeats to Sheamus and R-Truth on episodes of SmackDown and Main Event, respectively, last year.


At 6'5", 255 lbs and with a football background, Cal certainly fits the bill for what WWE is looking for in a talent. Given how he had zero pro wrestling experience before signing with WWE, Bloom has clearly made quite the impression in his two years at the WWE Performance Center if the company is already weighing him up for a move to Raw or SmackDown.

In addition to Cal Bloom and Austin Theory working a pre-SmackDown dark contest, those in attendance on Friday also got to see Xia Li and Kacy Catanzaro defeat Dakota Kai and Aliyah. All four women have worked several such dark matches in recent weeks, with all tipped for impending main roster moves.
