WWE is adding some new faces to their developmental pool.
Ahead of SummerSlam this Saturday, August 21, WWE held tryouts in Las Vegas. According to Denise Salcedo, Triple H, Matt Bloom, William Regal, and Samoa Joe were all in attendance to watch the hopeful talents.
One of the names to be offered a developmental contract by Triple H was Faith Jefferies. The Las Vegas local, who also goes by the stage name of FaithyJ, is an actress, musician, dancer, and wrestler, among other things. Inside the ring, the 22-year old is best known for her time with Women of Wrestling as Faith The Lioness.

She's a very energetic girl with a fun personality based on the interview we just did. pic.twitter.com/13mJaSxQAW— Denise Salcedo (@_denisesalcedo) August 19, 2021
