WWE Just Signed a Kuwaiti Athlete

Post by Mark

Over the weekend the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) announced that they signed Nasser Alruwayeh, the first Kuwaiti ever to join the WWE. I haven’t watched WWE since back when it used to be called WWF, but I still think this is a pretty cool signing.

Nasser is a crossfiter who took part in the invitation-only tryout in Dubai last April. He managed to impress the WWE coaches and training personnel which is why they decided to sign him along with Shadia Bseiso, the first Arab woman to sign with the WWE.

    He should call himself Sheikh of Oil.

    This is excellent news! However he has a long road ahead of him. First he will go and train in the Performance Center in Florida, then he will first make his appearance on NXT (WWEs developmental show), then eventually and hopefully, he will either go to WWE Raw or Smackdown

    I wish him all the best, its very very hard to get a contract with WWE and it is awesome he did

      Interesting. But what did he sign on then? An agreement to commit to the process?

      • Nasser says:

        He signed on a developmental contract. It’s like a pre-cursor to the actual contract. They train him, build his characters and his skills, and if they think he is awesome (hopefully he will be), they then give him a Superstar contract

        It is quite the process but its still great either way. Good for him

    Awesome! I haven’t watched wrestling in like 20 years but this is still very cool, and from what I can tell online WWE seems to be going through a rebirth where it’s cool to like it again.

    I always remember hearing that they have started hiring people specifically to appeal to certain markets – there is an Indian wrestler that they made the Champion because it would look great with the Indian fans for example.
