Hanna and Haley Cavinder, the Cavinder Twins, are making history as they were announced as part of the first class of WWE’s Next in Line program. This partiicular program was recently introduced as WWE’s way of recruiting collegiate athletes into becoming future WWE stars, allowing them to use the resources provided by the WWE Performance Center while still in school.
According to reports, the twins “stand to make six-figures on the deal.”
The basketball stars at Fresno State University already have a huge following on just about every social media netwrok.
The sisters spoke with TIME this week about the decision, openly admitting they never grew up thinking about becoming pro wrestlers, but are now interested in the opportunity.
“We definitely didn’t grow up wanting to become wrestlers,” Haley said. “It just kind of happened. It’s right up our alley because it is entertainment. And that’s what Hanna and I do on the side.”
“I don’t think there’s any concern. It’s just entertainment. We love connecting with our fans and bringing our audience to their audience and meshing them all together,” Hanna later added.
Triple H also gave his take on the twins.
“I’ve heard it so much over the years … ‘if there had been a pathway, man, I would have gone down that road,'” he said. “We’re creating that path.”
“In today’s world, somebody like the Cavinder twins who are already out there showing that they are pretty much larger than life and creating brands on their own, those are people that are interesting to us,” he later said. “They clearly have the personality and clearly are smart enough to figure out how to manipulate that charisma to make something of themselves. We can amplify that.”
