WWE is set to hold tryouts at the Performance Center this week with several notable names set to be involved.

POST Wrestling has independently confirmed the following names set to take part in the tryouts, which begin on Wednesday:

Brogan Finlay – 21 years old and son of Dave “Fit” Finlay and younger brother New Japan star David Finlay. Has been wrestling on the independents since 2021.

David Goldschmidt – Was trained at the Monster Factory and featured on the school’s series on Apple TV+.

Jamie Stanley – Wrestling since 2019 and has served as a referee for the NWA, has teamed with Joe Alonso.

Haley James – Wrestles as Haley J and is featured on the new OVW series on Netflix

Malachi Jeffers – 19 years old and better known as Jay Malachi and wrestling since 2019. Wrestled on AEW Dark in the past and works regularly with DEADLOCK Pro Wrestling.

Ray Jazikoff – Wrestles as Ray Jaz and is 27 years old with prior experience on AEW Dark, MLW, and a regular on Beyond Wrestling cards.

Kelsey Hornack – Wrestles as Kelsey Heather and as Randi Rah Rah on Women of Wrestling.

Richard Holliday – Perhaps the most well-known of the group from his work at MLW since its relaunch six years ago. Holliday moved on from MLW and battled Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma over the past year and returned to wrestling. He is 30 years old.

Noelle Giorgi – Wrestles as Valentina Rossi and is 27 years old. She started in Women of Wrestling as Adriana Gambino. She has worked many AEW Dark matches as Valentina Rossi and Mafiosa.

Madison Dombkowski
– Better known as Madi Wrenkowski, she is 28 years old. She debuted in 2019 for Mission Pro Wrestling in Texas. She had a regular presence in AEW in 2021 and 2022 before moving to the NWA where she held the NWA Women’s tag titles with Missa Kate before losing them last month.

Mike Johnson at PWinsider.com has added Jessica Roden to the list of attendees at the tryouts. She was trained by Rikishi and she wrestles as J-Rod.

I’ve seen Goldschmidt (who wrestles as Goldy) as recently as last month at the All Star Junior Festival. I’m rooting for him after learning more about him on the Monster Factory series.

What sort of WWE naming conventions do we expect to see with this lot? Personally I’m thinking it’s gonna be “goodbye, Jamie Stanley” and “hello, Geronimo Foley” (later shortened to just “Geronimo,” and then “G-Ron). Ray Jazikoff kinda sounds like a McMahon name to begin with for some odd reason so maybe that one sticks.
