21 year old Swedish-born Sarah Backman has started at the WWE Performance Center down in Orlando, Florida, this past Monday after complications with her work visa resulted in a longer-than-usual wait to make her way to the United States.
“It’s exactly 7 years ago I started armwrestling – Nov 19 2006,” she wrote on her Instagram account yesterday. “Pretty funny that I started WRESTLING almost the same date 7 years later,” she added, saying that it’s going to be very exciting to see where she will be in seven more years. Her comments were accompanied by a selfie of her wearing the Property of WWE Performance Center t-shirt.
The eight-time World Arm Wrestling champion signed a developmental deal with the WWE earlier this year after retiring from arm wrestling to pursue a wrestling career with the WWE.
Backman was also on the Swedish version of Gladiators, playing Gladiator Spirit on the show.
