World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) just signed a new diva, Shadia Bseiso, their first female Arab wrestler.
From among 40 men and women who were invited to the exclusive talent tryout that was held in Dubai earlier this year, Shadia Bseiso landed a contract and is to become the first female Arab wrestler at WWE.

Bseiso, who was born in Jordan, is well trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a “CrossFit enthusiast”, according to a WWE release.
“Bseiso’s athletic abilities, confidence, and natural charisma – the last of which she showcased as a bilingual TV presenter – earned her the opportunity to further develop her skills with WWE,” the release said.
