The company announced on Sunday morning that Kavita Devi and Shadia Bseiso have signed deals with the company. Both women will begin training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, in January.

"It was a privilege to be the first Indian woman to compete in WWE", said Devi. I have visited the Performance Center and attended the Mae Young Classic.

The "Great Khali" became the first Indian to make an impact in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Universe, grabbing eyeballs of fans from around the world. "Working with WWE is an incredible opportunity". "I have personally witnessed the power of WWE and the passion of WWE fans".
