WWE Superstars get a lot of interesting opportunities in their careers with the company, and now it appears that one developmental talent will get a lot more exposure. The Bachelorette might not necessarily appeal to the same demographic as WWE, but there is about to be a bridge between the two.
We’ve seen WWE Superstars appear on reality television shows before. A few of them even had shows based around their own lives. This time, a much larger, and established, property is in play.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Caleb Balgaard, who is signed by WWE, will be on the next season of the Bachelorette.
Caleb Balgaard, 25, who is using the name Kale Dixon, will be on the next season of The Bachelorette, which debuts on 6/26. Balgaard was a college baseball player at South Alabama before being signed last year by WWE. He’s worked house show dates and LVL Up and was about to be brought to NXT television.
This is a big opportunity for Caleb Balgaard to get some really crossover appeal. Only time will tell how this turns out for him, but he must be excited about the possibilities, even if he doesn’t win the whole competition.
We will have to see where WWE’s signed talent show up next. Obviously, you never know where that will happen, because the company is open for business more than they ever have been before.
