*Updated* WWE Holding Women’s Tryout In UK This Week

Quote:
According to several sources, WWE will be holding a women-only tryout camp at the UK Performance Centre in Enfield later this week.

The class was originally supposed to start today and run through Thursday but was moved back to later in the week and will now run from Wednesday.

WWE has been keen to bolster the ranks of its NXT UK Women’s Division for some time and has started making moves in that direction recently with the signing of top European stars Kay Lee Ray, Viper and Jazzy Gabert.

Teenager Millie McKenzie was also offered a deal earlier this year but turned it down, opting instead to continue her wrestling education as part of Meiko Satormura’s Sendai Girls in Japan.

There are currently 10 women on the full-time NXT UK roster, including NXT’s Australian star Rhea Ripley – the first NXT UK Women’s Champion.

Several female wrestlers from the UK and Ireland are expected to be in attendance at the camp, including the following names:

* Rhio – a 22 year-old with a martial arts background who wrestles regularly for northern promotions Tidal, TNT, MEW and PCW
* Shax – a 5-foot-tall six-year pro who has worked for WrestleGate, Pro Wrestling CHAOS and Southside. Does a burlesque gimmick and is the girlfriend of No Fun Dunne
* Kanji – a graduate of Stixx’s wrestling school in Nottingham who shot to prominence when she became the Defiant Women’s Champion at the end of 2018
* Debbie Keitel – a regular for OTT in Ireland alongside her Woke Queens tag partner Valkyrie, who is also expected to be at the camp. Keitel is also a former television presenter
* Candy Floss – who has made several appearances for NXT UK in the role of enhancement talent
* Jayde – who competes for HOPE, Southside, Kamikaze Pro and IWL
* Jessica Light – a trainee from Zack Gibson’s wrestling school
* Heather – a trainee from British legend Marty Jones’ wrestling school


It has also been rumoured that flamboyant Irishwoman Martina – who created quite the buzz over WrestleMania weekend – would be part of the camp but we are unable to confirm that at this time.

I'm guessing Riho is trying to keep her options open after her five match contract with AEW runs out. I mean an offer from WWE could definitely help with contract negotiations with AEW, and vice versa.

Completely different person this is Rhio a UK wrestler.

I can't blame any talent who signs a contract but I wish WWE would just leave everyone alone for a bit. They already have a bunch of girls they don't need anymore and if they sign even half of this lot the indys will be really drained. Most of them are young and would develop much better if they can still work everywhere, Millie made a really smart choice turning them down.

True. Most of these women should be replacing the women that WWE already took from the UK scene.

I hadn't heard that Millie had turned an offer from WWE down, that's interesting.

Someone like Millie (who's only like 18 right?) doesn't feel like she should be signed anywhere now.

She's already got a decent reputation so it would be nice if she could build that for even longer before settling down somewhere like WWE or even somewhere like AEW or Impact.
