Bea Priestley has officially joined WWE NXT UK. During Thursday’s episode of the show, the news was confirmed in a new video package. She is now using “Blair Davenport” as her in-ring name.
A teaser video aired last week showing a woman named Blair Davenport signing an NXT UK contract, but her face wasn’t revealed. Priestley said that she has wrestled all around the world and sacrificed everything to get to where she is today. She ended by questioning those who thought she wouldn’t end up a part of the greatest women’s division.

She finished up with NJPW where she had been part of the United Empire with Will Ospreay, The Great-O-Khan, and Jeff Cobb after an angle that saw her take an OsCutter by Ospreay following his New Japan Cup finals win.
Priestley previously worked for AEW until last August when she departed. She finished up her commitments with Stardom this past April when she lost to World of Stardom Champion Utami Hayashishita with the title on the line.
