ESPN recently spoke with the man who will be heading the tryout, William Regal, about what the company will be looking for from the 40 participants.

"I've been doing this long enough that once I spend a day with somebody, I can say, 'Well, this person will be good at this as long as, obviously, no injuries and everything goes right, but it may take two years. This person could be getting good at this after six months,'" Regal told ESPN. "But if you were to ask me to actually describe what that is, it's more of an eye for looking at things or looking at people than actually being able to write down the formula of it.

"There's no easy answer," Regal continued. "But you want the physical attributes to be able to do it. Over a few days you learn a lot about people and whether they've got the kind of temperament that you need to do what we do in this day and age. You find a lot out about people when they're blowing up, as we say, gasping for air, and if they can still hold conversations and be polite. Also, they've got to have some kind of charisma, because you can have 10 gold medals hanging 'round your neck, [but] if you've got no charisma at all, you're just absolutely worthless to what we do."

Regal also touched on the success of the tryout in China as well as the rise of current NXT Tag Team Champion Rezar who is of Albanian descent.
