Which appeared to be a piece of interesting news for the WWE Universe, Priscilla Kelly has now joined the NXT roster. WWE is always open to sign younger talents in order to add more depth to their roster, especially on their third brand. So the company has now secured three new female talents and all of those will also make their NXT debuts as part of the 2021 Women’s Dusty Rhodes Classic tournament which is the inaugural part, as well.
During WWE’s The Bump on YouTube Channel, it was first announced that WWE has come to positive terms with Elayna Black, Lacey Ryan, and Priscilla Kelly. The three will now be respectively known as Cora Jade Zoey Stark and Gigi Dolin.
The latter name is quite popular on the indie wrestling circuit who was on the radar of the WWE for some time. For those who don’t know, she is also the ex-wife of All Elite Wrestling star, Darby Allin.
Priscilla Kelly injected a tampon on her opponent’s mouth
Priscilla Kelly has garnered a lot of attention in the indies where she made headlines with controversial stunts, most notable one of them involved a tampon incident. More than two years ago, she wrestled Tuna at a Suburban Fight Pro Wrestling event near Los Angeles on December 30, 2018. Once the match was over, she pulled out a bloody Tampon off her shorts and shoved it down to her opponent’s throat.
The Internet Wrestling Community went wild following this incident where Veterans like WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, Impact Hall of Famer Gail Kim, WWE Producer “Road Dogg” Brian James mentioned this one to be a heinous act. Later, while speaking to The Shining Wizards, Priscilla Kelly commented saying that she didn’t expect a negative backlash over her spot. She just expected this to be a funny incident as the tampon spot was fully staged.
This 2021 signing is not the first time that Priscilla Kelly will be seen on WWE TV, for the first time. She participated in the 2018 Mae Young Classic that is in the inaugural edition.
Unfortunately, she lost in the first round of the tournament to Deonna Purrazzo. Now she will be seen in another first-time tourney in the WWE starting from last night’s NXT. The bracket released for the same goes as follows,
* The Way (Candice LeRae, Indi Hartwell) vs. Gigi Dolin and Cora Jade
* Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon vs. Marina Shafir and Zoey Stark
* Mercedes Martinez and Toni Storm vs. Team Ninja [Winners of first-round] (Kacy Catanzaro, Kayden Carter)
* Aliyah and Jessi Kamea vs. Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez
