NXT wrestler clarifies status with WWE after reports of her departure



It was reported last month WWE had released NXT talents such as Kavita Devi, E.J. Nduka, Alexander Wolfe, Vanessa Borne, and referee Drake Wuertz.

In Wolfe’s case, his contract with the company is expiring this month so WWE simply decided against renewing it.

Devi clarified her status with the company during an interview with Hindustan Times. She claims the reports are not accurate as she is home with her husband who contracted COVID-19 back in January. Devi noted that she has been working through an ACL injury for the past year.

“I’ve read some of those reports, and they aren’t accurate. I have been back at home in India since January. My husband contracted Covid earlier this year and I needed to be here with my family, I chose not to go back to America. Everyone at WWE has been incredibly supportive, I am filled with gratitude for everything they have done for me.

I have also had an ACL injury for over a year and have been unable to perform in the ring but WWE still supported me through all of that. They understand that India is where I need to be. We are working together on a new arrangement that allows me to be home, but still part of the WWE Universe.”

She signed with WWE in 2017 where she had her debut match with Dakota Kai in the first-ever Mae Young Classic. Devi last wrestled in July of 2019.
