More Details on New WWE NXT Diva

The official NXT (previously FCW) website has now added a profile for mysterious newcomer, Anya, revealing more details about her background.

Diva Dirt broke the news of her joining WWE a few weeks ago when one of our reporters spotted her at an FCW show.

Few details were available about the Russian-born fledgling Diva at the time, but according to her official NXT profile, Anya, from Voronezh, Russia, moved to the US last year and has plenty of experience in combat sport, particularly kickboxing.

Upon researching further into her background, it appears Anya’s real name is Anna Bogomazova and she is a champion kickboxer, placing second in the Kickboxing World Championship in 2006 and 2008, and first in 2011. She also holds a black belt in Taekwondo.

As well as her impressive background in sports, she is also a qualified lawyer with a degree from the Voronezh Cooperative Institute in Russia.

    I see they weren’t kidding when it was reported they wouldn’t be hiring from model catalogs anymore.

    Still not getting my hopes up.

  • WhalenX12

    Really looking forward to this girl. She’ll do amazing.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    Wow reading all that, I can’t wait to see her in the ring and plus with her heiight is a extra bonus as well because there hasn’t been very many divas as big as her, so I am supper pumped to see her in wwe Also Buggy nova hasn’t been released, her profile just hasnt been added back to the website yet because she is currently on her way to the nxt arena However what I did find interesting about Anya profile is that it’s mention a NXT DIVAS TITLE, so I wonder if we will be seeing a new divas title soon, only time will tell I guess can’t wait to see the spoilers for tonight I kinda hope we get to see Anya wrestle

    • kreece

      same here! I just hope they give her a solid gimmick and take her seriously, if they enforce her height and size she could be a nice addition to the budding divas division

    • perceval

      She’s taller than Stacy and Chyna.

    • Future-Knockout/Diva

      I saw that too! on Audrey Maries profile they listed her as a former NXT Divas Champion

  • shannymac

    Damn, that’s impressive. Let’s just hope that she proves as successful in wrestling as she did in these other areas of her life.

  • Jhonmarco

    She sounds pretty badass. Hopefully she takes to wrestling.

  • xoxoRKOxoxo

    All her combat sports will deffenitly help her with wrestling without a doubt I’m very interested in seeing what she can do!!!

  • Nostalgia

    Im loving this. As of late the divas have been getting 5-6 minute segments. I think they should release Kelly Kelly because she’s the weakest link and doesn’t seem to want to improve.

    • Jillfan1

      reports are saying most likely she won’t come back and if so not for long she shows no interest your right WWE finally realizes it, it hit them in the head late last year glad there focusing on talented people who can stick longer

  • shameronstar

    She’s a female Russian kickboxing black belt lawler! That’s amazing and now she’s going to be a wrestler! All I can say is that with her size combined with her fighting background that some divas may end up dying(figuratively of course)!

  • wl75

    I had assumed at some point they’d have a Divas belt for NXT….

    And she should pair up with David Otunga- Otunga & Bogomazova, Attorneys at Law…have a door and an desk backstage APA-style…

    • charleshp

      They’re largely re-branding FCW as NXT so I would assume anyone who has the old belt will be credited with the new one.

      • HeyChrissy

        I thought Caylee(sp?) had the old one and she’s not with WWE anymore so it’s vacant.

  • shameronstar

    I just heard that female Olympian Diana Lopez is interested in joining wwe! Wow wwe went from playboy and miss tropicana models to dancers, gymnasts and fitness competitors to kick boxers and tae kwon do fighters!

  • Jillfan1

    WHOAAAAAAAA so no wrestlin experience yet she is athletic as hell whoa Black belt= TAEKWONDO yikes wwe divas BE AWARE LOL she is a looker too OMG things are looking up WWE NOT INTERESTED IN MODELS NOT EVEN RIMAH YESHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    • Marshy

      Rima needs to understand that her fellow competitors have got release from their contract and she could have been one of them,besides she was on this dating program on Fox where people gets to date a celebrity and if she wants to continue her training to become a wrestler that she should be looking into schools or go to OVW and train to be a wrestler and join TNA that is what she should do,if one door closes that another one will open or just be patient.

      • Jillfan1

        LOL i don’t see her in wrestling at all

        • Lanoom

          Good, cause she admitted on Twitter that WWE wasn’t interested in her.

  • Rhawk

    Not the most attractive woman (actually looks better in her trophy pic than her NXT one) but I’m actually intrigued by her after hearing of her background. If Sara Del Ray has her way with this one, then the divas will be absolutely bricking themselves.

  • lucky1now

    I’m loving her just by hearing that if she can adapt to wrestling and wwe allow their women to really go at it she would be great!
    Seems lately wwe is trying to improve their divas

  • THETommyTommy

    She looks like Catnip from the Hunger Games. I like her look, its different, like Buggy. I’m actually excited about this new breed of divas they’re bringing through. Please WWE! Keep it up! Just imagine adding Sara Del Rey and Kharma into the crop. I would die.

    • TehKardashianKing

      “Catnip?” AUTOCORRECT FAIL. :3

      • perceval

        Still not as good as Autocorrect renaming Melina “Melons.” :)

  • TorrieWilsonFan03

    i think its coz Triple H is taking over signings more and more and he is interested in signing athletes over models, even though its rumoured he hates women’s wrestling, it’s seems he’s doing the same for the women what he’s doing for the men and is taking from the mould of him and chyna

  • sanchezdiego96

    This is exciting! She’s got model looks and can apparently kick ass. This is what we need! I hope she can incorporate her kickboxing into her wrestling.

  • Nostalgia

    With the type of women they’re hiring. They better have GOOD storylines because “Oh I don’t like her because she’s fat, prettier, etc” isn’t going to mesh well with the Russian bruiser, Sara del ray, buggy nova, and others

  • gavin harvey

    kool ! but had any one read the reports that hhh is going to stop focusing on the divas as hes not a fan of woman wrestling and hes not going to do much with them only the tag team and meal wrestlers hes going to be looking out for !

  • Like Mike

    Skyler Moon’s profile is off the NXT site.. is she already released as well? Looking forward to Anya, she looks like she’ll be a beast in the ring.

    • redsandman99

      Her profile is under construction. She tweeted about it already.

      • jcarcano12

        She is fighting tonight on nxt she tweeted getting ready for nxt I think her gimmick change?

        • Like Mike

          Ah, thank you for the heads up! Not on twitter so I don’t know these things haha. I’m glad she’s still around, I wanna see more from her.

  • mikie91

    Actually that definitely is a rumor. I believe HHH does like women’s wrestling. I remember years ago during the height of the divas division. HHH was asked on Byte this (old online WWE show) something about the divas and replied that he wished there were more girls there so IDK if that’s saying anything. But then again shortly thereafter we got the diva search…..

    • Lanoom

      Well technically the Diva Search fulfilled that promise, but Triple H wasn’t in charge of things. but ,now he is ,and he’s making some significant moves. I really hope things pan out.

  • MickieJamesluvslave

    Brains beauty and brawn the total package.


    this girl is no joke!! plus she is beautiful. i hope she can do justice in the ring!! (i dont really know who she is)

  • Kessuki

    Fantastic! she can be something pretty special in-ring given her height and being skilled in kickboxing. totally surprised by her background, i hope it all works out smoothly for her in wwe and that the transition to wrestling comes naturally.

  • carlos22

    I just hope she is passionate enough to learn.

  • lilraven27

    So when they misuse her she can sue their as*es off, doing all these signings and Triple H went on the record saying he wanted more tag teams and less Divas, i hope for the love of god that this will either create a new all diva show with its own creative and/or better story lines but i doubt it on both ends

    • redsandman99

      Triple H never went on record saying that. All the reports I saw said those close to him expect it to happen but that doesn’t mean it’s actually true. It could just be dirt sheet fodder for all we know at this point.
