WWE NXT Signs Priscilla Kelly, Lacey Ryan & Elayna Black

Straight into the Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic

WWE added three new names to the NXT women's roster earlier today and Lacey Ryan, Priscilla Kelly and Elayna Black have all signed with the company. Ryan will now be known as Zoey Stark, Kelly will go by Gigi Dolin and Black will be called Cora Jade. 

WWE NXT tweeted: "#WWENXT is proud to announce the signings of: Zoey Stark (FKA Lacey Ryan), Gigi Dolin (FKA Priscilla Kelly), Cora Jade (FKA Elayna Black) #WeAreNXT #DustyClassic @priscillakelly_ @ElaynaBlack @LaceyRyan94."

The new WWE Superstars won't have to wait long to get in the ring as they will wrestle in the Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Dolin and Jade will team together in the tournament while Stark has been paired with Marina Shafir. The other teams competing for the Dusty Cup are Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart, Mercedes Martinez & Toni Storm, Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter, Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell, Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez and Aliyah & Jessi Kamea. 

Priscilla Kelly previously competed in WWE during the 2018 Mae Young Classic and was defeated by Deonna Purrazzo in the first round. She has primarily wrestled on the indies since then, but she has twice appeared inside an AEW ring.

Lacey Ryan is an eight-year veteran of the squared circle. She has spent much of the last year wrestling for Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, Future Stars Of Wrestling and Mission Pro Wrestling. She also worked IMPACT Wrestling's February 2020 tapings and lost a Knockouts Title match against Jordynne Grace. 

Elayna Black has been wrestling on the independent wrestling scene for the likes of GCW and Warrior Wrestling over the past few months. She has also competed on AEW Dark as an enhancement talent.
