WWE Is The Worst? Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards At WWE Performance Center

American Wolves ToysAccording to Prowrestling.net, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards were at the WWE Performance Center on Monday. First, I had to laugh that even though Jason Powell didn’t bag on them like I did when Richards made a not so vague statement at Preston City Wrestling but he did come to the same conclusion that I did which is that these two ROH stars will spark the WWE Tag Team division. I’m not sure it needs sparking with The Shield (Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins), The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper & Erick Rowan), the Prime Time Players (Darren Young & Titus O’Neil), The Real Americans (Antonio Cesaro & Jack Swagger), Los Matadores (Diego & Fernando), 3MB (Drew McIntyre, Jinder Mahal & Heath Slater), The Usos (Jimmy & Jey), Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai) and the current champions Cody Rhodes & Goldust. I can’t believe I needed three lines of print to list all of the tag teams which also leaves out the maybe new team from last night of R Truth & Xavier Woods. So the WWE has nine tag teams with a tenth in the making. Does that sound like a company that needs to jump start their tag team division? I’m as guilty as anyone on the internet who buried, dug up and re-buried the tag team multiple times between about 2002 and now but I’d have to say no spark is needed currently. Could the WWE use another team? Sure, because they’ve got more TV time than any daily soap opera.

It was also amusingly noted that they spent time in the ring with Billy Gunn and NXT regulars. I’m not sure what exactly Gunn is going to teach them since he was bad on both the mic and in the ring. At least Richards & Edwards already have the in ring work down. I know the one thing Gunn could teach them is how to market themselves. No one forgets the Billy Gunn theme. No, not the big introduction he got from “Road Dogg” Jesse James during his New Age Outlaws days. This one. – Kevin

Are Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards Headed To The WWE?

This clip from Preston City Wrestling has people wondering if Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards have signed with the WWE. If they have, I will have to compliment ROH for keeping them off TV for most of the last several months. When they have been on, it’s been in the tag team division. The last point is where I think the WWE would put them because neither of these guys have fantastic mic skills. I mean, you did watch that Youtube clip above, right? It’s also good thing for both of these wrestlers that the WWE has revived the use of manager’s also because of said verbal abilities. I enjoy Eddie Edwards but still have yet to figure out why Davey Richards has ever been called “Best In The World”. If they have signed with the WWE, it will be interesting to see if they get the CM Punk treatment and get sent to NXT to learn the WWE style or if they get a pass straight to the main roster.

Since Davey was vague in the above promo, there is still the possibility that they have signed with TNA. That would be a mistake on both ends. Richards & Edwards aren’t going to bring in new fans. Likewise they won’t garner any new fans in TNA or if they do, it won’t be enough to budge the needle. Richards & Edwards would probably just do the same American Wolves schtick in TNA since everyone stagnates there. In the WWE, they would at least be challenged to come up with a new gimmick. We’ll have a howling good time waiting to see where these two wrestlers find their new hunting ground. – Kevin
