Among the many wrestlers added, one is the brother of WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions, The Usos. The 240-pound Joseph Fatu is a member of the Anoa’i family. Will he be the newest addition to the Bloodline?

Another interesting addition is Bobby Steveson, who is the brother of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Gold Medalist Gable Steveson. There also have been talks about Steveson joining the company as well. Could this be a hint for future signings?

Does WWE need fresh faces?

The fans are on the fence with WWE due to the recent releases. The sudden debut of CM Punk also fueled the fire in WWE’s rival company, All Elite Wrestling. With so many releases, the company might need newer wrestlers with lower wage bills to compensate for the loss.

It won’t be long till we see many NXT superstars get a call up to the main roster. Former NXT Champion Karrion Kross is a prime example of the same.

With Brock Lesnar’s return, WWE is expected to have great ratings for a long while. But nothing can be written in stone when it comes to the fans. The lifeblood of the company decides if they like what they are watching or not. And if they don’t like something, they will let the officials know.
