The search for Africa’s next World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar is now open.
WWE, in conjunction with its Sub-Saharan Africa broadcast partner, SuperSport, announced a continent-wide talent search to find Africa’s next WWE Superstar during a press conference in Lagos, Nigeria.
If you think you have what it takes to become the next big name in WWE , here is what you need to know:
The Search for Africa’s Next WWE Superstar is open to Nigerians and citizens of other African countries between the age of 20 to 40 years.
To apply, interested candidates are to submit a video highlighting their potential to become a WWE Superstar.
Successful applicants will be invited to participate in the Lagos tryout in February 2023. For more information on the application process and guidelines visit the website.
A select number of tryout participants will then be awarded an all-expenses-paid experience to continue their tryout journey, alongside current and prospective WWE Superstars, ahead of WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles in April 2023.
A full-time WWE developmental contract may be offered to the top-performing participants who will then begin their new careers at the world-class WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
WWE fans will be able to watch all WWE Premium Live Events, including WrestleMania, as well as WWE Network’s vast library of original and archived programming on demand from early 2023 on Showmax, Africa’s most loved streaming service.
Until then, SuperSport, the sport broadcasting subsidiary of video entertainment platform MultiChoice, will continue to broadcast live weekly episodes of Raw, SmackDown, and NXT as well as all of WWE’s Premium Live Events in a multi-year extension.
