WWE announces signing of Kavita Devi

Earlier today, the WWE has announced that Mae Young Classic competitor Kavita Devi has signed a developmental contract, making her the first female talent from India to sign with the company.

Devi, who made the history at the Mae Young Classic by becoming the first Indian-born woman to compete in a WWE ring, is an accomplished powerlifter and was trained by former WWE World Heavyweight Champion The Great Khali.

Devi commented on her signing, saying:

“It was a privilege to be the first Indian woman to compete in WWE. Participating in the Mae Young Classic with some of the best female performers in the world was a great learning experience. Now I am looking forward to pursuing my dream of becoming the first WWE Women’s Champion from India.”

In the same press release, the WWE announced the signing of Shadia Bsieso from Jordan as the first female talent from the Middle East to sign with the company. Bsieso signing was originally made during the airing of the Mae Young Classic.

Both women are scheduled to begin training at WWE’s Performance Center in January.
