WWE Recruit Nicola Glencross Talks About Being ‘Best In The Galaxy’, The WWE Signing Process, Her Wrestling Goals

New WWE recruit Nicola Glencross, aka Nikki Storm, recently spoke with WWE.com about how she ended up signing with the company, her experiences working around the world and more. You can read some highlights below:

Nicola Glencross explains the tryout and signing process: 

Last year in London I did a tryout — that was last spring. During the summer they contacted me to start the hiring process, and then, here we are [laughs].

It was a lot of fun! We did a lot of conditioning drills, had a couple of practice matches and we did some promos. It was a three-day tryout and a fascinating experience. It was fun and it was challenging in a really good, positive way.

Advantages she may have over other recruits: 

For me, the good thing about traveling and wrestling across all these different countries is it makes you really grow as a person. It helps your wrestling grow, it helps your skill grow, it gets you used to working with different styles, different people — you really have to adapt. At the same time, when you go to somewhere like Japan, America, Canada or anywhere in Europe, you also still can’t forget why they brought you there in the first place. You very much still have to be able to adapt, but also be yourself and bring stuff to the table.

Also, as I touched on earlier, you grow as a person, I think. The more life experience you can have, I think it’s very good and helps a lot. The important thing is holding on to what you are and what brought you to the table, but also to adapt, because, in wrestling, you never know what to expect, so you have to be very open-minded. You have to go with the flow and fight for the stuff that you really want.

Glencross talks about her goals in WWE: 

NXT Women’s Championship, WWE Women’s Championship, Tag Team Championship … by myself [laughs]. No, for me, I’ve got goals in mind and I want to leave a legacy behind, and in 20 years’ time, I want people to know exactly who I was. I want to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, I want to achieve greatness, I want to have these amazing matches, I want to have history-making matches and I do want to become champion. I’ve got big goals for myself.

Nicola Glencross comments on the change in women’s wrestling in WWE:

To watch it, the TakeOver matches and just everything, was fantastic and awesome. There are so many great female Superstars on the roster that I’m excited and can’t wait to work with them. I’m looking forward to having matches with the women I’ve been watching for a long time. I really think it’s a great movement, and I think it’s a great time to be a part of the division. And yeah, I want to be a part of it.
