NXT Stars Officially Called Up To SmackDown

NXT Stars Officially Called Up To SmackDown

It’s being reported that former NXT stars Shotzi Blackheart and Tegan Nox are now officially members of the SmackDown brand.

The duo appeared as a tag team on this past Friday’s episode of SmackDown and picked up a win over WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina.

As you may have guessed by them winning, PWInsider has confirmed that it was not a one-off and they are officially both on SmackDown now.

The blue brand was in dire need of additions to its women’s division after having a very depleted roster due to the recent releases and other absences such as Sasha Banks and the now-injured Bayley.

It appears this isn’t something that had been planned for a while as Blackheart was still in a team with Ember Moon in NXT and Nox had just returned after weeks of teases to enter a feud with Candice LeRae.

There were also vignettes on Friday’s show that former NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm has been called up and will be debuting soon.
