Rachael Ellering Works First NXT Match Since Signing With WWE

Rachael Ellering worked her first match under the NXT banner since signing with the WWE.

She did so when teaming up with Deonna Purrazzo to battle Mia Yim & Taynara Conti at the NXT live event on Thursday in St. Petersburg, FL at the St. Petersburg Armory.

This is where Ellering and Purrazzo lost to Yim and Conti in the tag team match.

It should be noted that Ellering has worked matches on NXT television in the past as an enhancement wrestler as well as competed in the 2017 and 2018 Mae Young Classics.

However, it marks her first match as an official NXT star since signing with WWE. She was recently announced as part of the new Performance Center recruits by the WWE and started training at the facility in Orlando, Florida last month.
