WWE & Kavita Devi In Talks Over New Arrangement

She has claimed reports of her release are inaccurate

Kavita Devi has said reports of her WWE release are inaccurate and she and the company are working on a new arrangement.

"I've read some of those reports, and they aren't accurate. I have been back at home in India since January. My husband contracted COVID earlier this year and I needed to be here with my family, I chose not to go back to America. Everyone at WWE has been incredibly supportive, I am filled with gratitude for everything they have done for me," Devi told the Hindustan Times.

"I have also had an ACL injury for over a year and have been unable to perform in the ring but WWE still supported me through all of that. They understand that India is where I need to be. We are working together on a new arrangement that allows me to be home, but still part of the WWE Universe."

Devi will instead be working with WWE as an ambassador in India and she could possibly be involved with live events and recruitment in the country.  

"India continues to be a very important market for WWE with some of the most passionate fans in the world. I will still be involved as an ambassador for WWE in India. In the future that may mean I am involved in scouting new talent or with WWE Live events, anything is possible. There are incredible Indian talent at WWE and I will continue to champion them here at home - including Sanjana George, from Kottayam, who recently signed a developmental contract at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando," she continued.

Devi signed with WWE after performing in the inaugural Mae Young Classic. She competed at some NXT live events and at Worlds Collide 2019, but she hasn't stepped inside the squared circle since she tore her ACL in the summer of 2019.
