Former World Kickboxing champion Katya "Dominator" Kavaleva revealed in an interview with WMMA rankings that she has a tryout for WWE at the Performance Center in February 2017. Below is a quote:
"I am so so excited for this once in a lifetime opportunity to try out for the most amazing entertainment company. I want to show people my true inner person. Yes I am big and strong and sometimes can be a little crazy. I guess I am like a real life Dr Jeckyl and Mr Hyde I can be sweet soft and real woman like but in an instant can snap and power-bomb someone through the ring! I am mostly today just feeling honored to even have this chance to be in the same ring as legends". She said.
