WWE Confirms the Signing of Rok-C Plus Other New Recruits

WWE has confirmed the signing of Rok-C plus other recruits in an official announcement.

Speculation has been swirling for months that the former and inaugural ROH Women’s World Champion had signed with WWE. Rok-C, whose real name is Carla Gonzalez, has trained under the tutelage of Booker T and his Reality of Wrestling school. Booker T had previously announced her signing and then took back what he had said, saying he misspoke.

Rok-C became the first ROH Women’s World Champion last fall after she competed in a 15-person tournament. She defeated Miranda Alize in the finals. After holding the belt for 119-days, she dropped the belt to the current champion, Deonna Purrazzo.

Her bio reads as follows –

Carla Gonzalez from Pasadena, Texas is better known as Rok-C after graduating from Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling school as the youngest ROW Diamonds Champion.

Other signings for the new recruits include some names that have already appeared on WWE programming in NXT. Those names include Fallon Henley (formerly Tesha Price) and Kayla Inlay. Their official bios are as follows from WWE.com

Theresa Schuessler who debuted on NXT 2.0 as Fallon Henley, is a 24-year old Tampa, Fla., native with five years of experience under her belt competing in the independent circuit under the name of Tesha Price. 

Kayla Inlay has already begun to make a name for herself on NXT 2.0 and NXT Level Up. A former collegiate dancer and cheerleader, Inlay was trained by former WWE Superstar Tyler Breeze after training at his school “Flatbacks.”

Henley just recently picked up her first singles victory in NXT 2.0 with a victory over Tiffany Stratton two weeks ago and is starting a feud with Elektra Lopez. She has been seen as Tesha Price in AEW. Inlay has had three televised matches so far and has gone by the name of XTina Kay in AEW.

Other names that join WWE are as follows:

Calyx Hampton is a 22-year-old former athlete from the University of Oregon having competed on the school’s Acrobatics & Tumbling team, earning NCATA Individual Event National Championship honors.

18-year-old Maddie Knisley is a six-time state champion in vault, having trained in competitive gymnastics for 11 years. She also competed on the independent wrestling scene as Nikita Knight.

Carelli participated in the first annual Women’s Invitational Tournament for NWA EmPowerrr last August.

Amelia Herr is an 18-year-old Criminal Justice major out of West Chester, Pa. With two years of Taekwondo training under her belt, she also competed on the independents as The Notorious Mimi.
