Could something big — or Diva Search-like — be looming?
A group of 10 Diva “prospects” have completed four weeks of training at WWE’s developmental territory, NXT, according to their various Twitters.
We already know WWE held auditions for wannabe Divas in Los Angeles last month, and then there was a tweet from Reby Sky revealing that the company had recruited the girls from modeling agencies.
The ladies, ranging from models, aspiring actresses and dancers, certainly fit the Diva mold, but what the training consisted of, along with just what they are training for, is unknown at this time.
It appears, however, that the potential Divas worked with NXT’s head female trainer Sara Del Rey and were given some words of wisdom last night from former WWE Diva Eve Torres, who, as previously reported, visited the developmental camp.
Tweeting about her teaching experience, Eve wrote:
Had a chance to meet some new WWE Diva “prospects” yesterday. Great group of beautiful, athletic, talented women.Future’s looking bright!

Among the prospects are model Natalia Eva Marie, whose Twitter bio describes her as a “2012 Powertec Fashion Model Winner”. She thanked Eve for her “amazing insight” during the three-time Divas Champion’s visit to NXT.
Natalia wrote: “Thank u so much to the stunning @evemarietorres for all ur amazing insight tonight….u truly are such an inspiration! Truly feel grateful for the opportunity to sit and chat with u????????????? #WWE #DIVA #grateful #blessed (sic).”
Meanwhile, another prospect “print and commercial model” Olivia Karpinski posted a picture, presumably taken last night, of the 10 Diva hopefuls along with Eve and Del Rey on Instagram.
Another hopeful, Erika Hammond, indicated on Twitter yesterday that it was the “last day of Diva training”, while Natalia added: “Seriously feeling so #grateful at this moment in route to a closing dinner w/ my fellow #divas after weeks of training like #beasts (sic).”
Other prospects, based on what we can piece together from Twitter include: Aimee Fogelman, self-described singer and dancer Joseann Offerman, “official Red Bull spokesmodel” CJ Perry, Courtney Camero aka Jaguar from VH1’s ‘For the Love of Ray-J 2’, athlete Maysa Quy and Jennifer Sterger.
It’s rare that WWE would bring in a group of 10 unsigned females for a month-long training course. Unless they have something planned? 10 is a pretty round number — enough to fill, say, a Diva Search contest? And if the ladies have had a four week crash course in the ring, it would give them a leg-up over their past Diva Search counterparts. Or could this just be a four week “internship” to select talents to sign to developmental deals?
Interesting times in the world of WWE Divas!
