RIZIN heavyweight star Jazzy Gabert joins WWE’s May Young Classic tournament

Heavyweight MMA star Jazzy Gabert is returning to her pro-wrestling roots to compete on WWE’s May Young Classic tournament. The winner of the whole show will receive a full-time contract with the number one pro-wrestling organization.

The RIZIN FF Heavyweight star will appear on the WWE Mae Young Classic tournament.

The WWE confirmed the news on their official website:

Representing Germany in the Classic is Jazzy Gabert, a muscle-packed, 6-foot-1 brawler who has wrestled internationally for more than 15 years. A strongwoman and professional MMA fighter outside the ring, the bruising Berliner has achieved her greatest success in Europe and Japan.

Gabert is a multi-time champion in Japan’s Stardom organization, and she is currently a women’s champion for groups in Germany and Switzerland. In MMA, she has fought under the banners of the Rizin Fighting Federation and IFO Europe.

Despite the move back to pro-wrestling as part of the WWE, this does not rule out the “Alpha Female potentially competing in more MMA fights. As we’ve seen with Brock Lesnar, athletes are able to compete in both.

Gabert (1-1-0 Pro) is currently signed to RIZIN Fighting Federation. She is the number-two ranked heavyweight fighter in the world. She made her professional MMA debut this past October, knocking out Manuela Kuhse in the second round following some heavy ground-and-pound. She returned in April, losing out by way of a second round armbar to King Reina. Nevertheless, the “Alpha Female” has yet to taste defeat when competing against fellow heavyweights.

The 34-year-old from Germany trains at the Planet Eater gym, alongside UFC superstars such as Krzysztof Jotko, Peter Sobotta and many more. She is one of the most respected pro-wrestlers in the world, becoming a household name, particularly in Japan.

Last month, Gabert announced she will release her first autobiography, “No Guts, No Glory”, later this year.

  1. I think she is out a doubt one of the toughest female wrestler who has the power and the strength in this business . And I know for a fact that she will definitely changed the WWE Woman’s division a lot differently than before though cause u don’t want to even dare cross her path of total domination and destruction if these ladies and gents from both Raw and Smack Down r concerned , believe me this ” Alpha Female ” Jazzy Gabert would certainly destroy all of them if she has to reguardless if they r really scared of her athletic abilities inside the ring though . Especially if their names r Alexa Bliss or perhaps Carmella and James Worthington for two examples , I think they better start praying for what’s to come cause this woman is certainly means business when it’s time to hunt for her prey of victims , these r the ones she will destroy I guarantee it ain’t gonna look pretty for tonight show on Raw as well !! I say Jazzy Gabert do what u feel like preparing for Alexa Bliss cause she will definitely get your attention !!
