WWE to hold an all-female tryout in the UK

NXT UK’s brand has been red hot lately. The NXT UK TakeOver: Cardiff event has recently been announced. It is scheduled for the same day as AEW’s All Out on Aug. 31. The current women’s roster on the brand has 10 amazing athletes that put on incredible matches. There is always room for growth, and an all-woman tryout is just the place to do it.

According to sources in an exclusive from WrestleTalk, the following women will be attending this tryout camp later this week. This will take place at the UK Performance Center.
