Jessie Elaban Makes Her WWE NXT Debut Hosting “The Jessie Show”

WWE NXT's Jessie Elaban

Jessie Elaban, who began training at the WWE Performance Center in June, made her NXT debut on August 10, 2017, at a live event in St. Petersburg, Florida.

She introduced herself to fans as Jessie and hosted a talk show segment called “The Jessie Show.” Her guest was Demetrius Bronson, but the segment was interrupted by Kona Reeves and Chinese recruit Gu Guangming, who is using the name Ming and acting as Reeve’s bodyguard.

Throughout the segment, Jessie acted hyper and very excited.

This led to a match between Reeves and Bronson, which Reeves won.

Elaban, who is 29 years old, was offered a contract by WWE after participating in a tryout at the Performance Center in late 2016. She has no prior wrestling experience.

Prior to joining WWE, Elaban was a yoga instructor and played volleyball in college at Waldorf College in Forest City, Iowa and Concordia University Texas in her hometown of Austin, Texas.
