Originally published at REPORT: Millie McKenzie signs with WWE, joining NXT UK brand
Millie McKenzie has signed with WWE and will be joining the NXT UK brand, as first reported by talkSPORT.
McKenzie was a regular for RIPTIDE, PROGRESS, Pro-Wrestling: EVE and several more promotions across the United Kingdom. The 20-year old has competed for NXT UK in the past as she wrestled in two televised matches for the brand in 2018, one of which being a NXT UK Women’s Title tournament match.
During the summer of 2020 as the #SpeakingOut movement was ongoing, McKenzie opened up about former NXT UK talent Travis Banks being emotionally abusive towards her during their relationship while Millie was 17-years of age. Banks responded to the claims via a statement on social media and said their friendship developed into a consensual relationship. Banks was released from WWE in June.
WWE recently signed Meiko Satomura and she is a part of NXT UK as well. On last week’s program, Satomura scored a win in her in-ring debut and afterwards, stated during a backstage interview that she is ready for NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray.
