Jakara Jackson has not been medically cleared to compete in her scheduled match in the Women’s Breakout Tournament on Tuesday’s edition of NXT.

The Meta-Four member was due to take on Arianna Grace. Her place will be taken by newcomer Brinley Reece, who will be making her televised NXT in-ring debut.

Reece has so far only competed at untelevised NXT live events under the name Breanna Ruggiero.

The substitution was announced on Monday evening on NXT social media.

So far in the tournament, Kelani Jordan and Lola Vice have advanced. The other first-round match set for Tuesday features Karmen Petrovic vs. Jaida Parker.

This means Arianna Grace will wrestle at least 2 matches in the tournament. I don’t think she was supposed to go through.
