WWE had initially announced that NXT GM Regal would be at the EVOLVE event in Atlanta to “conduct a little business.”

Shotzi has also revealed her remaining indie appearances, after which she would be working with WWE.

Initially, the news of Shotzi’s signing was reported by Squared Circle Sirens on October 9. At that time, Shotzi denied the report on Twitter, writing in a now-deleted tweet, “Who said? Also im 26 not 28….cant even get my age right.”

In 2015, Shotzi Blackheart appeared as a contestant on the latest season of WWE Tough Enough, where she used her real name, Ashley Urbanski. She was unable to make it to the final 14 due to a medical issue. She also had a WWE tryout back in 2016.

The 26-year-old California native has worked with Hoodslam, All Pro Wrestling, and with women’s wrestling promotions like SHIMMER, Shine Wrestling, and RISE Wrestling.

After working with a number of UK promotions, she made her debut in IMPACT Wrestling and competed for two matches. She is actually going to compete at the company’s October 19 All Glory event, in a triple threat match against Laynie Luck and Kylie Rae for the Zero Pro Women’s Championship.
