As first reported by gerweck.net WWE has signed Australian wrestler Demi Bennett to a developmental contract with the company back in April. She has since been renamed to Rhea Ripley.
Demi was apart of the last set of Australian tryouts WWE had in Australia last December. She was scheduled to attend the tryout WWE held in Australia back in 2015 but was told she was too young to participate in it.
She wrestled her last match ever with her home promotion Riot City Wrestling back in April where successfully defended her RCW Women’s Championship against KellyAnne English, vacating the title afterwards.
In a evenly-matched, hot contest for the championship, Demi left nobody guessing as why she has been selected to show the world how good she is. Even with interference from Casey Johns, Demi walked away the winner.
