Former AEW wrestler appears to be headed to WWE NXT UK

Nothing in wrestling is guaranteed, but it’s looking more likely that Bea Priestley will be joining WWE in the near future.

Back in April, there was speculation that Priestley was headed to the company after finishing up with Stardom when Priestley worked her last date by challenging Utami Hayashishita for the World of Stardom Championship but was defeated. She ended it by thanking the promotion and revealing this was her last date.

At the time, Dave Meltzer speculated that since she was moving back to the UK, she wouldn’t be working for AEW again nor going to NJPW.

Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “although because of WWE rules, nobody can say anything until the company announces it, but Bea Priestley is almost surely headed to NXT UK.”

She worked for AEW from 2019-2020 then went to NJPW to be paired with Will Ospreay. She had a WWE tryout back in 2016 and before she signed with AEW, she reportedly turned down an offer from WWE.
