- The official WWE NXT website has added a profile for 6-foot-1 Anya from Russia. The developmental Diva was signed earlier this year and it’s now revealed that she has a “decorated” background in kickboxing.
Diva-Dirt reports that Anya, a black belt in Taekwondo, won the Kickboxing World Championship in 2011. She placed second in 2006 and 2008. Anya is also a lawyer with a degree from the Voronezh Cooperative Institute in Voronezh, Russia.
– We received an e-mail from a fan who says WWE made his son cover his t-shirt up for last week’s Saturday Morning Slam match that was taped with Brodus Clay vs. Curt Hawkins, airing this coming Saturday. Reader Kyle Bailey sent the following:
“We had really just sat down and started eating when one of the guys came over and said my 10 year old sons shirt wasn’t appropriate for a kids television show. My son rides dirtbikes in his spare time and his shirt said “SHUT UP AND RIDE.” I tried to argue with the guy but he handed us a Rey Mysterio t-shirt and said that they were filming a lot of crowd footage with kids tonight. We had him put on the Mysterio t-shirt but weren’t happy about the whole situation and how it was handled in front of the people we were sitting next to.”
