Clarification On WWE Working With Indie Promotions WWE

A new report has provided some clarification on NXT star Ivy Nile’s upcoming appearance for independent promotion Reality of Wrestling.

The Reality of Wrestling promotion, owned by NXT commentator Booker T, recently announced a working relationship with WWE, revealing that Ivy Nile will be in action on the promotion’s February 11 show.

Shawn Michaels later shut down rumors about more NXT stars potentially working indie dates, noting that Nile’s visit to ROW will be a one-off appearance.

Dave Meltzer discussed the situation on Wrestling Observer Radio, noting that ROW expects to work with NXT stars ‘from time to time’.

Clarifying the situation, Meltzer said:

“I will try to explain it, Ivy Nile will be working a show in a couple of weeks for Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling. Right now, the Reality of Wrestling because of Booker T, it’s not….Shawn Michaels actually said it’s a one-time thing.

“From what I understand, regarding Reality of Wrestling goes, they expect to get some NXT stars from time to time.

“Bryan (Alvarez) had put in a tweet and Bryan is basically correct that there are several other companies that have been talked to with the idea that they may be able to get NXT stars, but the Booker T thing has to go well.

“If it goes well, there are other companies and I think they’re targeting companies that have good relationships with AEW and see what they can do.

“That’s part of it of course too. They would be willing to send in theory NXT talent to some independents at maybe…companies have been talked to whether it ends up happening or not, we don’t know.”
