Former MMA fighters Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir begin training today at the WWE Performance Center, according to WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: Duke, Shafir, Shayna Baszler, and Ronda Rousey are known as the Four Horsewomen of MMA. Duke and Shafir have both appeared on WWE television in the past, and Shafir is engaged to NXT wrestler Roderick Strong. This should lead to all sorts of speculation that the company will eventually build to the Four Horsewomen of MMA vs. the Four Horsewomen of WWE (Charlotte, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, and Bayley).
