Netflix Star Gabi Butler Signs Deal With WWE

WWE continues to add to its roster with some notable talent, signing a Netflix star to a deal with the promotion.

On Tuesday, Gabi Butler who starred in the cheerleading docuseries Cheer, told PEOPLE that she inked the deal. Butler had previously attended SummerSlam in Nashville in July.

Butler had raved about her previous experience attending the live show.

“I was so involved in the cheerleading industry for so long, and I never really looked into anything other than cheerleading,” she said. “But when I went to SummerSlam, it really just opened my eyes to the athleticism and the dedication the athletes bring into the ring.”

Butler is a native of Boca Raton, Florida and brings athleticism from her career as a cheerleader and gymnast. She will likely begin her time with the promotion at the WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
