Bea Priestley Joins WWE NXT UK As 'Blair Davenport'

Her arrival was confirmed in a vignette

Bea Priestley has officially signed with WWE, making her debut on NXT UK on Thursday.

Priestley's debut on the black-and-gold brand's UK division came after a teaser on last week's show, in which 'Blair Davenport' signed a contract with NXT UK. This week, her face was finally revealed, confirming Davenport is the new in-ring name for Priestley within WWE.

During her vignette, Davenport said: "I have wrestled all around the world. I have sacrificed everything to get to where I am today. I have given up friends, I have given up family, to master what I do. 

"Did you really think that I wouldn't end up a part of the greatest women's division on earth? Blair Davenport has arrived in NXT UK."

Priestley had her final match for Stardom in April, unsuccessfully challenging Utami Hayashishita for the World of Stardom Championship.

She was also formerly part of the United Empire with Will Ospreay, The Great-O-Khan, and Jeff Cobb in NJPW. WWE's newest recruit was written out of NJPW in an angle where she was given an OsCutter by Ospreay.
