In November 2019, WWE announced a new batch of wrestlers had been signed and would report to their performance center for further training.
One of the wrestlers in that group is Scarlett Bordeaux. Wrestling fans may already be familiar with Scarlett due to her work on the indie circuit and Impact Wrestling.
But soon WWE fans will get to meet the star as she prepares for her upcoming debut.
Before Scarlett makes her NXT debut, let’s take a look at a few facts to get fans acquainted with the wrestler.
By signing with WWE, Scarlett received her big break and will be a popular name among WWE fans.
However, what many don’t realize is that Scarlett briefly worked with WWE in the past.
One of her first appearances came in 2014 when she dressed in a wacky costume as part of wrestler Adam Rose’s entourage The Rosebuds.
Her next WWE appearance came in December 2016. This time she stepped inside the ring to fight Nia Jax. However, Scarlett didn’t have much of a chance to show of her athleticism because Jax defeated her in a squash match.
With her gorgeous looks, Scarlett has attracted the attention of male wrestling fans.
But for anyone hoping to have a shot at her, they need to take a backseat.
Scarlett is in a relationship with wrestler Killer Kross.
The two began dating when they were both working for Impact Wrestling. The couple often make appearances together at wrestling events and conventions. Scarlett even accompanies her beau to the ring during one of his matches.
With Kross now a free agent and wrestling promotions eager to sign him, many wonder if he’ll join Scarlett in WWE.
With wrestlers being popular athletes, many fans believe they make the big bucks. However, that’s not always the case.
Before joining WWE, Scarlett was working with Impact Wrestling, which is also considered a top promotion. Despite being one of their rising stars, Scarlett wasn’t paid enough for her wrestling work.
When she wasn’t wrestling, Scarlett was working side jobs and living with her mother to make ends meet.
The money situation with Impact Wrestling is what led to Scarlett being released from the promotion.
Now that she’s signed with WWE, Scarlett is bound to get a nice, hefty paycheck.
Scarlett’s love of wrestling began in when she started watching the sport with her friends.
After seeing the athletes in action, she decided she wanted to be a wrestler. She began training at the age of 18 and a few years later was booking appearances on the indie scene.
Scarlett has stated that her wrestling inspirations are Lita, Gail Kim, Maryse, Awesome Kong, and Bull Nakano.
Scarlett has been praised for her in-ring work, and many feel that with the proper training and creative direction, she could be a top star in women’s wrestling.
