WWE Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon took to Twitter on Sunday evening and shared about chatting with new WWE signee and “Cheer” star Gabi Butler at Saturday’s WWE premium live event, Survivor Series: WarGames.
“It was great to chat with WWE’s newest signee, @GabiButlerCheer, before #SurvivorSeries #WarGames. I can’t wait to see what you do in the ring,” tweeted McMahon.
It was previously reported last Tuesday by People, Butler signed a contract with WWE after her visit to Nashville during SummerSlam weekend. The 24-year-old had stated that McMahon “really inspired” her to make the transition from cheerleading to WWE.
She will be continuing to cheer, as she has two years of college eligibility left. Butler previously competed at the Navarro College cheerleading program, where she prepared for NCA College Nationals under coach Monica Aldama. The second season of “Cheer,” was released earlier this year, while the first season was released in 2020.
