#1 Backstage WWE rumor claims that Vince McMahon wants to push Cal Bloom?
As per the latest rumors, second-generation WWE wrestler Cal Bloom is in line for a huge push. The backstage stories suggest that the youngster has impressed Vince McMahon and the WWE boss reportedly sees him as a future main-eventer in the company.
Bloom recently faced Sheamus, and his performance led many into believing in his caliber. Some went as far as comparing him to Edge, which speaks volumes about the positive reaction that he has fetched since his match against the 'Celtic Warrior' on SmackDown.
Talking about the backstage reaction to Bloom's arrival in WWE and his growth since March, Paul Davis said,
“I’ve heard from people in WWE who have seen Cal Bloom’s training at the Performance Center and have said that he is someone who can be a main event Superstar in the next couple of years. 'Everyone is comparing him to a young Edge,' said one WWE source. 'He is rough around the edges, but he has something, and Vince thinks he can be a big deal...' The coaches at the Performance Center have also had good things to say about him."
This WWE rumor surrounding Cal Bloom could be huge for the youngster. All it took was one match for him to showcase his worth, and the officials seem impressed with his work. While Sheamus is now busy feuding with Jeff Hardy, Bloom might soon find himself involved in more compelling matches that will help him establish himself as a promising young talent.
Will Bloom make the best use of a huge opportunity that lies ahead of him? We certainly hope so.
