Lexi Gordon is a part of the WWE's first-ever NIL class.

The WWE announced its first-ever NIL class Wednesday morning, and graduate senior Lexi Gordon was one of the 15 student-athletes to be a part of it.

The goal of the program is to "recruit and develop future Superstars," and the NIL deal will give Gordon and the rest of the signed athletes access to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., as well as training in fields like communications, brand building and media training. After the NIL program ends, those who have successfully completed it have an opportunity at a WWE contract, the release said.
