Stunning former footballer signs with WWE after hanging up her boots in Iceland

Stunning former professional footballer Jade Gentile made her first WWE appearance last week when she was presented as part of NXT's fall class of 2022.

Gentile only took her first steps into the squared circle over the summer, just days after she'd arrived back in the United States from Iceland. The stunning brunette had spent the last two seasons on the volcanic island playing as a winger for UMF Afturelding.

The NXT superstar had grown up playing football stateside, and she had a decent college career with the University of West Virginia. However, when she was offered the chance to play professionally in Iceland, she jumped at the chance.

Gentile had attended a WWE trial in Nashville over the summer, which she said was tougher than playing football.

Speaking to WrestleRant, she said: "It's very physically demanding… yes, yes, 100%, soccer is what I thought the hardest sport there is – because in football, obviously, you're taking tackles, but they've got pads! You don't have pads in soccer.

"So you're getting hit hard, you're tackling people hard, it's not a joke! I was like, 'I've got this' as I went to a foreign country and didn't speak their language and I thought I could overcome everything. Then I came here and it pushed me to my limits!"

Gentile has amassed over 80,000 followers on Instagram, rocketing in followers since her presentation on NXT.

While there are traces of her past footballing life, Gentile loves to share snaps that show off her curvy body. One picture is taken in the Sky Lagoon in Iceland, with Gentile showing off her gorgeous looks with a stunning backdrop.

However, there are some snaps where Gentile can be seen practising her footballing skills, and another shows off the American in her UMF Afturelding kit.

The former footballer was one of 15 future stars presented on NXT TV, with others ranging from former NFL stars to ex-Volleyball pros.

It remains to be seen if Gentile will be allowed to keep her name to perform under, and when her in-ring debut will take place.
