Originally published at Blair Davenport (Bea Priestley) joins NXT UK roster

It had been promoted on NXT UK that a new signing by the name of “Blair Davenport” was coming to the brand. On today’s episode, that signing was revealed to be former World of STARDOM Champion Bea Priestley.

Priestley is officially a part of WWE and this comes after she wrapped up her run with STARDOM and a stint with New Japan Pro-Wrestling in the Fall of 2020. In New Japan, she was paired with former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay and her last appearance was when Ospreay gave her a Cutter.

In 2019, Priestley joined All Elite Wrestling but was released from the company in 2020. She was not able to travel due to the restrictions that were in place at the time.
