DUBAI: The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has been pushing for diversity lately, and has been picking up talent from different corners of the globe to make the company a truly global brand.
Moving forward with this strategy, the WWE has signed Shadia Bseiso from Jordan to a developmental contract, making her the first Arab woman from the Middle East to be part of the WWE.
“It is an honour to be the first-ever woman from the Middle East to sign with WWE,” Bseiso said.
Shadia is trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and CrossFit, she attended WWE’s invitation-only talent tryout in Dubai earlier this year.
“Working with WWE is an incredible opportunity. I have visited the Performance Center and attended the Mae Young Classic. I have personally witnessed the power of WWE and the passion of WWE fans. I look forward to starting on my path to becoming a WWE Superstar.”
“Recruiting Shadia to join our developmental system underscores WWE’s ongoing commitment to building a talent roster as diverse as our fan base,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative.
“We’re confident Shadia will help inspire future WWE Superstars, as we continue to recruit the most talented athletes and entertainers from around the world,” he said.
