The company has also signed Leah Van Dale, a former New England Patriots and Los Angeles Lakers cheerleader. She started at the Performance Center this week. Her father, Paul Van Dale, did enhancement work for the WWF in the 1990s and worked independently.
The signings bring up Joey Ryan, Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards, who were the biggest "independent wrestling names" at the most recent tryout. We have not heard that any of the three have been signed or offered anything as of this writing. In the case of the latter two, they are not currently under contract to ROH, so if WWE wanted to make them an offer, they obviously could. There's been a buzz about them potentially going, but nothing is ever, ever official until the deals are signed and they are actually under contract. That, however, doesn't mean it's a dead issue, either.
