‘American Ninja Warrior’ Superstar Kacy Catanzaro Has Reportedly Signed A Deal With The WWE

Before amazing stuntwoman Jessica Graff did the unthinkable and became the first woman ever to finish the American Ninja Warrior Finals Stage 1 there was a 5-foot tall dynamo named Kacy Catanzaro.

Catanzaro, as many of you probably recall, was the first female competitor to complete the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course and QUALIFY for the finals.

Now, according to TMZ and the WWE’s own Jim Ross, the 27-year-old Catanzaro is ready for the next athletic challenge in her life and has reportedly signed with the WWE.

WWE is currently airing their first ever Mae Young Classic, a 32 competitor tournament for female wrestlers, where the winner, and several others one would assume, will be offered contracts to join the company.

Catanzaro, however, is only just getting started…

The 27-year-old super-athlete had been training at the WWE performance center earlier this year … and Monday morning, Ross announced that she has signed with the company and made it official.

At just 5-feet tall and around 100 pounds, Catanzaro, a former Division I gymnast, could be reaping the benefits of another 5-foot tall female wrestler Alexa Bliss who, despite her diminutive size has proven to be a good enough performer to become a two-time WWE Raw Women’s Champion.

Here’s a video WWE shared showing Catanzaro getting familiar with her new job at their training center…
