Athena, like Biff Busick and Rich Swann, has been signed by WWE to a developmental contract. However, unlike those two, she'll have the weightiest expectations on her shoulders, even though that mantel may not be totally her fault. You see, NXT's women have arguably outshined the men, at least in the Takeover/Network era, and with that second wave of stars moving on to the main roster, the third wave will have to step up big time to fill those shoes. Thankfully, Athena is more than capable of continuing the strain of excellence started by Paige and Emma and continued by the Four Horsewomen. She can do it all with a stylish finisher to boot. Check her out here in Absolute Intense Wrestling against Mia Yim (Jade in TNA).
