Two of the new recruits that made cameos at the annual Mae Young Classic will be recognizable to U.S. and Jordanian audiences: Kacy Catazano and Shadia Bsesio.
Both have signed contracts with the WWE per Bleacher Report.
Recently WWE has been using their NXT product as a quasi-minor league program to introduce, cultivate and gauge audience reaction to new talent. It is possible both women will be introduced their first before being called up to the Big Show (pun intended).
]Kacy Catanzaro amazed and charmed audiences of American Ninja Warrior in 2014 when she became the first woman to conquer a city finals course and advance to the national finals stage in Las Vegas. She has also previously worked out at the WWE Performance Center.
Shadia Bseiso will be less recognizable domestically but is very well known internationally for her work on Jordanian television. She previously trained with the WWE in Dubai this past April.
“I want to be the first WWE female Superstar from the Middle East” she told Sayan Ghosh of the Hindustan Times. She currently has a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and should be a natural thanks to her previous TV work.
The popularity of Catazano and Bseiso should both help WWE ratings domestically and internationally.
