Exclusive: WWE Eyeing Two ROH Stars

WWE has expressed interest in both Mandy Leon and ex-NFL offensive guard "Moose" Quinn Ojinnaka of Ring of Honor.

Leon has appeared on a limited basis in Ring of Honor, mostly promoting their Pay Per Views on their weekly TV show while spending most of her time wrestling in New Jersey and Pennsylvania on independents such as UWE. Leon has appeared a few times on RAW as part of Adam Rose's entourage in recent months. Ojinnaka, who signed in mid 2014 with ROH and also has been used sparingly was recruited by WWE a few years back but never signed.

Leon, who does not have a ROH contract, did a tryout at the WWE Performance Center in January. Ojinnaka is scheduled for another one shortly upon his ROH deal expiring in the spring.

Several ROH wrestlers have yet to sign new deals with the company. With both WWE and TNA expressing an interest in some of the wrestlers, contract talks with ROH have slowed to a snails pace. ROH recently switched to a January-to-January 1 year contract for its talent. Booker Delirious (Hunter Johnston) is a big fan of New Japan, who for years has used the January-to-January contract for their wrestlers.
