WWE sign first women from Middle East with Shadia Bseiso set to join performance centre in January
WWE has taken on their first female talent from the Middle East.
Shadia Bseiso is set to join the company’s training centre in January after being selected from an invitation-only try-out that consisted of competitors from a range of different backgrounds.
And Bseiso — who is currently a TV presenter and voice-over artist based in Dubai — is excited to get stuck in with the WWE in Florida.
Bseiso said: “It is an honour to be the first-ever woman from the Middle East to sign with WWE.
“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.”
Bseiso was born in Jordan before attending university in Lebanon.
She is trained in Brazilian ju-jitsu which is why WWE chiefs were keen on giving her a try-out.
