Former WWE NXT Talent Debuts In AEW At Dark Tapings

Joining the likes of Marina Shafir and Arturo Ruas from recent months

Another former WWE NXT talent made their All Elite Wrestling debut over the weekend, performing at the promotion's Dark tapings from Orlando's Universal Studios. 

The likes of Arturo Ruas and Marina Shafir have performed on Dark in recent months and former WWE Superstar Vanessa Borne, now going by her real name Danielle Kamela, debuted on Dark on Saturday.

Kamela faced Shafir in her debut match and lost to the former MMA fighter. Saturday was Kamela's first match since an NXT house show in January 2020, over two years ago.

Kamela spent five years in WWE from 2016 until her release in May 2021. She was called up to the main roster in early 2020 after signing a new deal with the company but she ended up being sent back to NXT after she shared her concerns about joining RETRIBUTION. Plans for a faction with Chelsea Green and Santana Garrett were also scrapped.

Other talents in action at the latest AEW Dark tapings included Anthony Ogogo, Lee Moriarty and 2point0.
