    Default John Cena recruits Rikishi student to WWE.

    - SaukValley.com has an article up on Alex Jones, who recently signed a three-year developmental deal with WWE. Jones is headed to Tampa this week to begin work at NXT.

    Jones was working on his masters in strength and conditioning at USC when he met former WWE stars Rikishi and Gangrel, which led him to begin training at Rikishi's Knox Pro wrestling school. About 10 days later, John Cena was in town for RAW and was lifting weights at USC. Cena tabbed Jones as a potential star and recruited him into WWE basically.

    Jones attended a tryout camp back in August and says Jim Ross and Gerald Brisco couldn't stop praising him. Jones told SaukValley.com:

    "They all said, 'You could be our guy. Look at John Cena. That could be you.' Now, anything less than being a champ would be a disappointment."

    Here is a photo of Jones:

    It's good to see Superstars getting people recruited still. IIRC that's how Batista was discovered.

    No idea. The guy is pretty unknown at the minute, we should know when his bio gets put up on the NXT Roster Page.

    He's got a decent look and from the sounds of it has a good character. He's got great guys to work with in NXT so hopefully that will help his in ring game (from the sounds of it he's very green).

    While he may be green as a wrestler, he could be like Lesnar, Cena or The Rock and be a naturally gifted athlete who is able to pick it up easily.

    However, they do have a ready built angle right here in the future if this guy pans out, with Cena as his Mentor.

    I could see them using Cena and Jones in the way they wanted to use Undertaker and Nathan Jones back in 2003 before Jones got injured, and wasn't able to recover from sucking.

    But, of course, because this is wrestling, which of them would turn on the other?

    Either way works.

    Jones could turn on Cena, believing he should be the true face of WWE, and that he's surpassed his mentor.

    Cena could turn on Jones, going down the 'Paranoid Cena' route I've been wanting, believing Jones is just using him and doesn't respect him.
