Now a week removed from the tryout, Dave Meltzer is reporting that Session Moth Martina, real name Karen Glennon, is expected to sign with NXT UK. In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer said that people in the UK are “talking as if she’s already signed”.
In the press release confirming the tryout, WWE had the following to say on Session Moth:
28-year-old Dubliner Karen Glennon, a seven-year veteran who competes under the name of Martina. Known for her irreverent behavior inside the ring, Glennon is currently a titleholder in Scotland and has toured the U.S. and Japan, in addition to throughout the U.K.
Martina took to Twitter following to tryout to share what she described as “an amazing experience”. She went on to thank WWE for giving her the opportunity.
