Four new female recruits join the WWE Performance Center


WWE has signed four new female recruits to developmental deals and will be joining the WWE Performance Center and eventually NXT to beef up the women’s division after it was seriously dented with the departure of the top stars who joined the main roster.

The four individuals are Kimberly Frankele, Dori Prange, MaryKate Duignan Glidewell and Julia Ho.

Frankele is better known to wrestling fans as Kimber Lee while Prange is known as Heidi Lovelace. Glidwell, who is nearly six feet tall, wrestles under the name of Betsy Ruth while Julia Ho is a mixed martial artist.

Kimberly Frankele, 26, has wrestled for Combat Zone Wrestling, Women Superstars Uncensored, Shine Wrestling, Shimmer, and Chikara, and made her debut in 2011. She trained at the Combat Zone Academy under WWE Cruiserweight performer Drew Gulak.

Dori Prange is 25 years old and made her debut in 2010. She was trained at Ohio Valley Wrestling and also wrestled for OVW, Shine Wrestling, Chikara , World Wonder Ring Stardom, and Beyond Wrestling.

The 31-year-old MaryKate Duignan Glidewell has been a pro since 2007 and was trained by Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley. She wrestled in TNA under the name Miss Betsy and later as Rosie Lottalove in 2010. While on the indie circuit, she wrestled for WXW, World Woman Pro-Wrestling Diana in Japan and then retired in 2012 due to injuries. She made her return in 2014 under the name of Andrea and even appeared on the TNA Knockouts Knockdown 3 pay-per-view in February 2015 where she lost to Awesome Kong.
