Maxxine Dupri Details Her WWE Tryout Experience and Dance Background

Updated: Aug 9, 2023

Maxxine Dupri joined Women’s Wrestling Talk C.E.O. TK Trinidad for a brief interview this past SummerSlam weekend. When asked about her WWE tryout experience, she explained how she found a connection with Danielle Kamela (F.K.A. Vanessa Borne in NXT) as the two were former sports cheerleaders.

“And she [Danielle Kamela] actually helped me out for my tryout. We went to a gym together she taught me about all the rules she gave me so much good feedback and I don't know if I've ever talked about that publicly but I seriously owe so much of my tryout success to her because she really prepped me for it and I would have had no idea what I was walking into because there's nothing on the internet about it.”

Dupri also shared the advice that she gave her real-life boyfriend who is also trying out for WWE, telling him to enjoy the experience and soak all the moments in as it was an opportunity that she claims one does not come across very often. She furthermore discussed her dance background and how she transitioned from the dancing world to the professional wrestling industry. Maxxine notes how the performance aspect and her passion for being onstage easily translated for both dancing and wrestling.

“It's also insane to, you do the same craft your whole life and you come in and learn this entire new sport that you know nothing about so it's definitely intimidating and challenging but the performance side of it kept it so fun for me.”

She also shared a fun fact that her favorite members of the well-known Kardashian-Jenner family were Kylie, Khloe, and Kim.
