Garrett is a former Shine and Women of Wrestling champion who previously had experience competing in WWE. She wrestled in the first Mae Young Classic in 2017, losing to Piper Niven in the opening round.

Also announced as part of the class are former football players Tehuti Miles and EJ Nduka, semi-pro basketball Aleksandar Jaksic, hip hop artist Briana Brandy, Jiu-Jitsu champion Rita Reis, Muay Thai instructor Marcos Gomes and Chilean wrestler Catalina Garcia. Several of these new signees, including Brandy and Miles have attended WWE tryouts within the past couple of years.
