    If she gets sign by the WWE that she will be the third woman from the Samoan race to be on the roster. Since the WWE has sign Andrea formerly known as Rosie Lottalove and Thea Trinidad has shows up twice on NXT that things are looking might brighter than it was when they were in TNA, give it sometime for the WWE to sign Thea Trinidad to a contract.
