The new era of WWE seems to be non-stop excitement. There have been several major happenings coming out of WrestleMania XL and the 2024 Draft, and now all signs point to more surprises and changes as the company builds momentum under Triple H and Nick Khan. New reports have just emerged from backstage on a popular superstar facing another significant change.

Tegan Nox was with WWE for four years after joining the company in April 2017 and was eventually released in 2021. The Welsh grappler was unable to debut in the inaugural Mae Young Classic due to a torn ACL. Nox was brought back by Triple H in December 2022 and has been on the main roster ever since.

The Girl With The Shiniest Wizard was drafted back to SmackDown just last month. With speculation on Nox having no creative direction, it was noted by Fightful Select that there was some internal interest in having Nox back in NXT.

It wasn't clear if Nox will be moving back to the NXT roster, or just returning for a brief run on that brand as a SmackDown Superstar. However, she is rumored to be heading back to NXT in the near future.


Nox often works singles and tag team bouts at non-televised live events, and on Main Event, but she has not had a RAW singles match since the five-minute win over Piper Niven on November 13, 2023. Her last match was on April 20 at the tour stop in Belfast, where she and Natalya defeated Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark.

Tegan Nox's last WWE NXT appearances

Tegan Nox had her last NXT match as a member of that roster on August 4, 2020. The episode saw the Welsh star defeat Indi Hartwell in just three minutes.

The Vixen of The Valleys returned to NXT for a special appearance on October 17, 2023. She was defeated by Lyra Valkyria in a match that lasted more than 11 minutes.


Nox worked more than 65 NXT matches and two more for NXT UK but never managed to win a championship there. She has also never held gold on the main roster, despite more than 65 matches there as well. The 29-year-old has previously challenged for the NXT Women's Championship, the SmackDown Women's Championship, and the Women's Tag Team Championship.
