Former WWE NXT star debuts at AEW Dark tapings

Marina Shafir made her All Elite Wrestling debut when she worked the Dark tapings on Friday at Universal Studios in Florida.

During the first session of the tapings, the former WWE NXT star wrestled Kris Statlander in a singles match.

Shafir signed with WWE in 2018, but wasn’t used as a wrestler on television very often. She was aligned with Jessamyn Duke as a tag team and associated with Shayna Baslzer as part of the MMA Four Horsewomen.

Back in August 2020, she did take part in Raw Underground. Original plans called for her to be part of Diamond Mine in NXT where she would be in a  “female enforcer” role for the stable led by her real-life husband Roderick Strong, but was released by WWE in June.

We will have complete spoilers from these tapings later tonight.
