Could WWE be on the verge of signing their latest Diva?
Popular women's wrestling website Diva-Dirt noted earlier today that WWE may be signing Lauren Kitt, long-term girlfriend of Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter, to a talent contract.
As the site notes, Carter took to his official Twitter account recently to claim that Kitt had the possibility of becoming a WWE Diva:
As Diva-Dirt notes, the telegenic Kitt has a background in bodybuilding, even competing in the prestigious World Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation competition in her career.
WWE have signed women from the bodybuilding world before: Legendary Diva Trish Stratus was a fitness model before signing her WWE deal. Kaitlyn and Aksana both have experience in the fitness industry too.
The prospect of WWE signing Kitt is an interesting one. Her relationship with the famous Carter could garner any potential run she has some mainstream success, something WWE seems desperate for.
Her good looks will undoubtedly help in her in getting over with the crowd too.
No doubt many frustrated fans will roll their eyes at the prospect of WWE signing yet another inexperienced model/bodybuilder.
And certainly Aksana and Kaitlyn haven't exactly been wowing audiences with their thrilling in-ring matches: Kaitlyn looks largely lost in there and the botch-prone Aksana is far better off as a manager.
Of course, no one expected big things of Trish either when she debuted in 2000, and she ended up accomplishing a great deal in WWE, eventually becoming one of the best female wrestlers the company has ever had. If wrestling has taught us anything, it's that sometimes you just have to wait and see.
