The Orlando, Florida-based WWE Performance Center saw a large new class start Tuesday with several notable names beginning what they hope to be an eventual journey to WWE.
Dave Meltzer says a class of around 30 men and women started with PW Insider reporting ten names that are confirmed to be in attendance. On a recent conference call, Paul "Triple H" Levesque said this class would feature the largest amount of women they have ever had in a class.
The male names PW Insider reported include former college football player Parker Boudreaux; Christian (Casanova) Brigham, Anthony Henry (one half of The Workhorsemen with JD Drake); Christian (Blake Christian) Hubble; and Bronson Rechsteiner, son of former WCW and WWF tag team star Rick Steiner.
On the female side, PW Insider reported Angela (AQA) Arnold; Gigi (Priscilla Kelly) Dolin; Cora (Elayna Black) Jade; Karissa Rivera and Zoey (Lacey Ryan) Stark. Meltzer had reported on those signings in late-January including Japanese talent Sareee. It's unknown if she also started Tuesday or if she has yet to move to the U.S.
Other recent signings that haven't been confirmed as starting Tuesday are Taya Valkyrie and Harlem Bravado.
WWE traditionally will announce the entire class several days after they start.
