– Tegan Nox, who formerly wrestled as Nixon Newell, will compete in the Mae Young Classic this summer.
On Wednesday, WWE confirmed four additional competitors for the Mae Young Classic, including Nox.
The 23-year-old Welsh native signed with WWE last year after making her name in the British independent scene but tore her ACL and got sidelined for 10 months with the injury.
She made her long-awaited debut on the NXT live event circuit in April and was introduced by her real name, Steffanie Newell. She changed her ring name to Tegan Nox last month, which caused a lot of chatter online from fans. In a recent tweet, Nox revealed the meaning behind her new name.
Tegan – Welsh Name/Origin – Loved One/Darling!
Nox – Harry Potter Spell – Favourite books!
Now that that’s cleared up, I’m gonna go watch some Grey’s Anatomy 🤙🏼 pic.twitter.com/bMf2KEWHKl
