WWE Signs Irish Women’s Wrestler, Backstage Speculation on The Rock
- Word going around at Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings was that The Rock will not be undergoing surgery for his injuries suffered at WrestleMania 29 because it would force his Hercules movie shoot to be delayed. This has led to some speculation within WWE that The Rock’s injury is fake but all signs point to it being legitimate.
- WWE has reportedly signed Irish women’s wrestler Rebecca Knox to a developmental deal. She debuted back in 2002 but retired in 2008 after an injury. She returned to the ring in October 2012 and has competed for top women’s promotions including SHIMMER. She also has experience in personal training, nutrition consulting, yoga, mixed martial arts, gymnastics, acting and stunt work.
Rebecca told The Herald newspaper in Ireland: “I want to make the most of this opportunity. Sheamus has shown that Irish pro-wrestlers can go all the way to the top.”
