5 Wrestlers and their WWE audition tapes
- These audition tapes are must-see! #WWE #RAW
#4 Scarlett Bordeaux
One of the highest-profile free agents in the wrestling industry right now, it has been widely reported recently that former Impact Wrestling star Scarlett Bordeaux is set to sign with WWE and become a member of the NXT brand.
“The Smoke Show” has made quite a name for herself amongst wrestling fans over the last year, with two of her matches amassing 44 million views and 33 million views on YouTube. To put that into context, it is considered impressive if a RAW or SmackDown segment receives anything higher than 1 million views on WWE's YouTube channel.
Four years ago, Bordeaux told the Chicago Tribune that she was hopeful of appearing on the 2015 edition of Tough Enough. However, even though WWE played a part of her audition tape on RAW (5-10 seconds of the video above), she did not end up participating on the show.
“Instead of going to my prom, I actually skipped it to go to my first wrestling show.”
That quote summed up Bordeaux’s enthusiasm for the wrestling business, as did her multiple WWE appearances as one of Adam Rose’s ‘Rosebuds’ between 2014-15.
In 2016, Bordeaux took part in her first official WWE match when she was quickly defeated by Nia Jax on an episode of RAW, but she has not competed on WWE television since.Published 05 Nov 2019, 20:40 IST
