Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterYesterday we noted that Triple H would not be signing Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards a deal, mainly because of their size. He made the decision not to offer them a deal after their tryout match against The Ascension on WWE NXT.
There's a story out that a blown spot in that match may have played a part in the two not being offered contracts.
During the match, there was a spot where Richards landed on his head, which was an accident. Earlier when the two teams were working on the match, Viktor picked Richards up without dipping down first. So when they did the match at the tapings, Richards went up and this time, Viktor dipped and the end result was Viktor losing it and Richards landing on his head.
The referee told them to finish the match, under orders from Triple H in the back, but they didn't finish it right away. It hasn't been confirmed that this played a part in them not being signed but it is going around.
