World Wrestling Entertainment is looking for the next generation of superstars and is holding open tryouts over the course of a few days before SummerSlam in August in Las Vegas.

“Talent is the lifeblood of our industry and these tryouts coupled with SummerSlam, one of our premier events, will help us discover world-class athletes that will serve as the next wave of WWE Superstars,” Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE executive vice president, global talent strategy and development, said in a release.

Athletes can register online for their spot to try out. If selected, they will later train at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
