We told you about it on Sunday, the referee Artémis became the first French woman to sign a contract with WWE. According to our information, the young woman of 30 years joins the company full time and will not be limited to NXT UK.
Still, according to our information, Artémis was to participate in NXT and Axxess shows during Wrestlemania 36, but the coronavirus pandemic was right about this opportunity. This, therefore, means that Artémis will not be exclusively linked to NXT UK. A future (more or less close) to NXT or even in the main roster is, therefore, a possibility.
On a different note, regarding NXT UK, WWE records four to five episodes each session, or one session every four or five weeks. This, therefore, explains why NXT UK is still provided with its public despite containment measures or restrictions.
Finally, regarding its future in France and Europe, Artémis will still be allowed to work for other companies, but with strict criteria and imposed by WWE. This contract seems to be identical to that offered to the top stars of NXT UK.
Artémis said about this news:
“It is obviously a great pride to have won this contract. It has been a long road on the independent scene to get there and the tryouts have been trying, both physically and mentally.
As a woman, I had to work 2 times harder than men to impose myself as an arbitrator (I was the only one in Europe when I started ten years ago), and Achieving even a WWE tryout last April was the reward for all these years of struggle!
Then came the TV matches at NXT UK and finally the contract offer. It’s a mixture of pride and gratitude, with of course the desire to progress and reach the main roster in the years to come! ”
