This is a good thing. Definitely helps in inventing a moveset and a backstory to everybody's character. 

Also please refrain from posting crazy long links in threads so it doesn't stretch the forum.

This is cool, but not very surprising. For a long time, wrestlers have had legitimate backgrounds in things other than being trained to be a pro wrestler. A lot of the prospects that have come through the dojo systems in Japan, just to use an example, have some sort of background in Greco-Roman or Freestyle wrestling, boxing, judo, sumo, or something similar. 

I think having people from various backgrounds learning from each other and forming their own styles based on what they know and not just doing things "The WWE Way" is a help for them, just like when New Japan brings in "outsiders" who aren't necessarily versed in strong style.

I love it. It adds some "legitimacy" to professional wrestling, and when people are trained in a certain Art it makes a move look believable for example when Baszler puts her opponent in the Rear Naked Choke it looks right and not as fake or bad. Plus, it is bringing wrestling back to its roots of having people who can actually do strikes, catches, submissions, etc, which is awesome.
