WWE News: Indy Women's Wrestler Gets Tryout Match, Films Commercial with Sheamus

Katie Gregerson@katiegregersonCorrespondent IJanuary 24, 2012

Diva-Dirt.com reported yesterday that independent wrestler Buggy Nova received a tryout match while WWE was in California.

According to a report, Buggy was at the Raw taping in Anaheim last week, as well as the SmackDown taping in Las Vegas.

Nova took part in a tryout match against SmackDown Diva, AJ. She appeared to thank AJ via Twitter, also, writing: "An unforgettable Thank You to @WWEAJLee."

In addition to a tryout match, Buggy also filmed a commercial with Sheamus and another independent women's wrestler, Lizzy Valentine.

There is no official word yet on what the commercial is for, although the first thought that comes to mind is that it could have something to do with the forthcoming WWE Network. However, the fact that the commercial was filmed at all seems a bit odd.

Lizzy Valentine has been approached by WWE before. She was asked to submit an application for the most recent edition of Tough Enough by the show's producers; however, she turned them down to accept a contract with Lucha Libre USA.

According to LLU's current roster page, however, Valentine is no longer working for the organization. Does this mean she could be in talks with WWE?

We probably won't know until this mysterious commercial comes out. Nevertheless, just the prospect of WWE seeking out female independent wrestling talent is exciting for fans of women's wrestling.
