Ruca underwent knee surgery in May 2023. Her absence from television was explained in storyline as her being one of the victims of Blair Davenport’s string of backstage attacks.

Real name Calyx Hampton, she signed a developmental deal with WWE in March 2022. She defeated Amari Miller in her television debut match on NXT in September 2022.
