WWE signee Shadia Bseiso recently did an interview with The LA Times. Here are some highlights….
On finding out she would be signing with the WWE on the final day of her try-out:
“On the fourth day, just before we all went home, Matt Bloom [WWE’s head trainer] pulled me aside and said, ‘Are you ready to move to the U.S.?’”
“How [do you] tell your parents you want to be the next WWE superstar? You don’t tell them except in person.”
On her transition to the WWE Performance Center and becoming a character:
“I spend the whole day in my gym when I’m on my day off. Now it’s my job. That’s something I love,”
On being WWE’s first Arab woman signee:
“It’s something I don’t take lightly.”
“I don’t know wrestling yet, but I’m going to be as good as I can be. I’m in this to headline Wrestlemania. I want it all.”
