At Thursday’s NXT live event in Orlando, Florida, Christy St. Cloud introduced fans to NXT’s first full-time female referee, Jessika.
Jessika wrestled on the independent circuit under the name Kennadi Brink before signing a contract recently with WWE to work as a referee.
Here are photos of St. Cloud introducing Jessika.

She responded to the above tweet confirming the spelling of her name as Jessika, and not ‘Jessica.’
Psst that girls name is Jessika I think?

Jessika was the referee for a match between Lars Sullivan and Kishan Raftaar. It was announced as the first time that a female has refereed a male match in NXT history.

Jessika has appeared as a referee before for NXT but in women’s matches. She worked some Florida shows back in March before signing a contract.
