It was recently reported that second-generation British women's wrestler Britani Knight debuted in FCW last week, wrestling in a battle royal under the ring name Saraya.
WWE’s new developmental diva Britani Knight, wrestling at Florida Championship Wrestling under the new ring name as Saraya, may be held off the WWE main roster for some time because of her age.
WWE has had an unofficial policy of late to not put anyone on the main roster until they turn 21...and Knight is currently 19 years old. The “Over 21″ policy is one of the reasons why Bo Rotundo, who recently turned 21, wasn’t featured on the earlier seasons of NXT.
If there is any one female performer who doesn't need to stay in developmental for as long as the others, it is certainly Britani Knight.
However, while keeping her off the main roster due to her age is somewhat of a disappointment—it means it will be longer until we get to see some good women's wrestling on WWE TV again—it is also a good move on WWE's part.
Nineteen is extremely young, and WWE execs without a doubt want to make sure that she and all of their other talent are mature enough to handle the demanding schedule of a WWE performer.
Additionally, it gives her more time to hone her skill—and more time for WWE to hopefully clean up the Divas division so that, when Knight is finally called up, she won't be wasted.
