One of the most successful combat sports athletes in the world has expressed an interest in joining WWE.
Clarissa Sheilds is an American professional boxer and mixed martial artist. She is a two-time Olympic gold medalist winning the esteemed prize in both 2012 and 2016, which makes her the first American boxer to win consecutive Olympic medals.
After her success in the Olympics, she turned pro later that year and embarked on a historic and record-setting run. She is currently undefeated with a 13-0 win streak and she is the only boxer in history, female or male, to hold all four major world titles in boxing the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO, in two weight classes at the same time.
Not content with conquering the boxing world, Sheilds signed with MMA promotion the Professional Fighters League in November of 2020. After training with former boxer and UFC Bantamweight Champion, Holly Holm she made her debut in 2021 winning her first fight but lost her second bout by a split decision.
Now, it seems as though she has another form of combat she wants to dominate. Shields was recently a guest on the Scoop B Radio Podcast where she revealed her professional wrestling fandom from an early age before declaring her natural ability to entertain would be a perfect fit for the world of sports entertainment.
“The WWE can call me anytime. I will come in there with my half-shirt on. I will come in there with my little tight legging shorts on, and I will definitely go on WWE, and I will definitely — listen, I’m a natural entertainer. I believe I would have a part in the storyline, and I would be all for it, and I could take some of those girls, so yeah, WWE, call me.”
