The report says McKenzie will be primarily reporting to the NXT UK brand, and that she’s already thought of very highly within WWE.
“We’re also told WWE has high hopes for McKenzie. She’s set to be plugged in at the top of the card in NXT UK along with fellow recent arrival Meiko Satomura, two women who know each other very well from the independent scene.”
McKenzie, from Coventry, has a long-standing in-ring relationship with recent NXT UK Championship challenger Pete Dunne, and his British Strong Style faction-mates Trent Seven and Tyler Bate, leading back to their days on the British independent circuit.
Former Defiant Women’s Champion Millie McKenzie has already wrestled in the WWE squared circle, competing in NXT UK three times across 2018. The first of which was a dark match against Killer Kelly and the second against Jinny, but the third would see McKenzie pick up her first victory while teaming with Xia Brookside against Charlie Morgan and Killer Kelly.
Last year, McKenzie had openly spoken out about emotional abuse suffered while in a relationship with then-NXT Superstar Travis Banks, who has since been released from the company – something TalkSPORT’s report says was central to her not signing sooner.
