WWE News: Second Generation Women's Wrestler Britani Knight Makes FCW Debut

The Wrestling Observer (via WrestingInc.com) posted the following today:

Britani Knight (real name Saraya-Jade Bevis), made her debut at the January 5th FCW show in Tampa. Knight is a second-generation wrestler, and had been signed months ago by WWE but was told to keep it quiet.

Knight was involved in a battle royal, and went by the name Saraya. Her mother wrestlers as Sweet Saraya, which is where her FCW name comes from.

Knight signed a WWE developmental contract in the fall of 2011 after receiving two tryout matches; however, when asked and congratulated about the news she released a statement on Facebook denying the claim. She then finished up a few independent wrestling appearances, including her Shimmer Women Athletes debut, before reporting to FCW.

At just 19-years-old, Knight is among the youngest—if not the youngest—talent acquired by WWE. Even so, she would make a refreshing addition to the Divas roster. She is a second generation wrestler of the famous British wrestling family The Knight Dynasty and has held numerous independent wrestling titles across Europe.

Perhaps a resurrection of the Women's Tag Titles is coming sooner rather than later? At the very least, we will hopefully see an overhaul of the Divas division itself once Knight and other deserving talent are brought up to the main roster.
