WWE news: Vince McMahon touting second-generation wrestler as future WWE star

Bloom has a big future in WWE

WWE are pushing on with their weekly SmackDown, RAW and NXT shows from the Performance Center in Orlando during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Due to the circumstances, some members of the roster have not featured on television because they simply cannot make it to Florida for filming. 

While many are missing, these shows from the Performance Center have given plenty of unknown NXT stars a chance to face main roster talent on TV. 

It seems that one of those developmental recruits has really impressed Vince McMahon, too.

Cal Bloom faced Sheamus on a recent episode of SmackDown. He was squashed, of course, but according to WrestlingNews.co, the boss was seriously impressed by his performance.

McMahon apparently watched Bloom in the ring for the first time on April 10 and remarked that 'there is potential to do a lot more with him at some point'.

"Everyone is comparing him to a young Edge," another WWE source told WrestlingNews.

"He is rough around the edges but he has something and Vince thinks he can be a big deal but it will take some time."

The same source noted that 'Vince thinks Cal has the size and look and moves around well in the ring, despite his lack of experience'.

Very high praise indeed. 

Bloom is a second-generation wrestler - the son of former WWE Superstar Wayne Bloom (Beau Beverly) from the Beverly Brothers tag-team - who spent two years in WWF from 1991 to 1993. 

He's 26 years old, 6ft 5in and signed a developmental contract with NXT in March 2019 after playing football at the University of Central Florida as a tight end for the UCF Knights.

Don't expect to see Cal in a major role just yet, but after being touted as a 'young Edge' it's very likely we'll be seeing more of him in WWE.
