Serena Williams is on WWE’s radar
According to the company’s chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon, the 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion is “awesome.”
Williams would be a welcome addition to the WWE roster, according to McMahon, and would represent a coup for the company as it continues to revamp its women’s division.
Serena Williams is being targeted by professional wrestling firm WWE as it continues to revamp its women’s division with big-name signings.
Williams is a 23-time Grand Slam champion in tennis, a tutu-wearing badass on the court, and a feminist hero to many off of it.
She is one of the most famous athletes in her sport, is considered the greatest female player in the Open Era of tennis, and would bring a set fanbase with her should she sign terms with WWE once she hangs up her tennis racket for good.
That appears to be what WWE may be banking on, as the company’s chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon hints that Williams may well be her ideal signing.
McMahon, daughter of WWE owner Vince McMahon, said: “Serena! I want Serena,” when speaking from the company’s New York. “She’s awesome.”
