Valerie Loureda, a Bellator MMA fighter, revealed that she has signed a contract with WWE in an interview with ESPN.com. She also made the following comments regarding the WWE.
“I’m an entertainer. I love glamor. I love production, I love storytelling. And when I saw the WWE, I realized this is everything I’m good at in one place. Not only that, but I saw the opportunity to be the first Cuban American woman to be a WWE superstar.”
“The moment I stepped into the suite and I saw the WWE organization, the professionalism and the production, I fell in love. I had goosebumps like the first time I saw MMA on the TV.”
