According to a report from Squared
Circle Sirens, WWE has moved to sign indie standout Shotzi Blackheart to a
Real name Ashley Urbanski, Blackheart appeared on the most
recent season of WWE Tough Enough, but her progress was halted due to a medical
issue. The 26-year-old California native also had a WWE tryout back in 2016,
although no deal was offered at that point in time.
In recent years, Shotzi has competed for promotions such as Impact Wrestling, SHIMMER, SHINE, EVOLVE, BEYOND, and Sabotage Wrestling, and she’s actually the
current SHINE Nova Champion and the Sabotage War of the Genders
The wrestler herself has actually taken to Twitter to seemingly
play down the news of her signing, although several outlets are now reporting
that Blackheart is indeed signed with WWE and is awaiting a start date.
Given how NXT has done such a fantastic job at presenting
some of its female talents over the past several years, fans of Shotzi
Blackheart will all be hoping that the Pizza Cat is afforded the opportunity to
make her mark in NXT sooner rather than later.
