Hometown: Rio de Janiero, Brazil
A 22-year-old judo master, Taynara Conti might be relatively new to sports-entertainment, having joined WWE last October with no previous in-ring experience, but her combat-sport bona fides are no joke. A black-belt judoka and a blue belt in jiu-jitsu, Conti brings a joint-wrenching mat game to the Mae Young Classic that has already earned her medals in Brazil. Her thunderous throws helped put her on the radar of WWE talent scouts, leading to her arrival to the Performance Center in 2016. Now, Conti prepares to show the entire WWE Universe what happens when a judoka enters the ring.
