Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis posed for a photo together for the first time since half of InDex was released from NXT!
Throughout 2021, the romance between Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis was a highlight of NXT television. Their wedding capped off the first official episode of NXT 2.0, and it was hoped that their love would go the distance.
However, Lumis was one of ten NXT talents released from WWE on April 29th alongside Persia Pirotta and Dakota Kai. After it became public knowledge that he had been released, he reclaimed his name of Samuel Shaw and posted a video on social media that showed him painting a portrait of Vince McMahon as he provided his booking information.
Despite indicating on NXT television that both Lumis and Perisa Pirotta had left their respective partners (which garnered a hilarious response from Persia), it seems that there are no hard feelings between the InDex members as they posed together for a recent photo that was posted on Sam Shaw’s social media. Along with the hashtag of their combined names, the tweet contained just one emoji – the silent star’s signature thumbs up.

While Sam Shaw is already back to making appearances outside of NXT, Indi has been trying to find her way as a singles star, though she hasn’t been finding much success. She was defeated by NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose on May 24th, and on the most recent episode, she fell to rising star Kiana James.
