We can confirm that recent WWE Tryout attendee and American Ninja Warrior star Kacy Catanzaro is backstage at Full Sail University, the site of tonight’s NXT tapings.
She participated in workouts alongside WWE recruits in the beginning of this year in a private tryout, taking her first exploratory steps inside the squared circle under the guidance of Performance Center coach Norman Smiley.
Catanzaro came to fame in 2014 when she became the first woman to complete “American Ninja Warrior’s” perilous city finals course. Nicknamed “Mighty Kacy,” the 26-year-old — who was a Division I gymnast before turning to obstacle course racing — has twice made “Sports Illustrated’s” “Fittest 50” list of the world’s top female athletes.
WWE has been doing medical testing this week for not only Mae Young Classic competitors but also other talent they are looking to sign to contracts.
