Report: Top Independent Star Likely Signing With NXT UK

WrestleTalk exclusively reported last week that WWE was hosting a female-only tryout at their UK based Performance Center. This was later confirmed by WWE, with Jamie Hayter, Candy Floss, Session Moth Martina and 15 other women announced as participants in the North London tryout.

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.

With regards to the 17 other wrestlers who attended the NXT UK tryout, there is no word on if any of them have been signed yet. WrestleTalk will provide more information if and when it becomes available.
