Kavita Devi, who had reportedly been released by WWE last month, has clarified her status with the company and NXT.
Devi has said that reports of her being released aren’t accurate, and she’s working on an arrangement where she can be in India but still part of WWE.
Speaking with the Hindustan Times, she said:
“I’ve read some of those reports, and they aren’t accurate. I have been back at home in India since January. My husband contracted Covid earlier this year and I needed to be here with my family, I chose not to go back to America. Everyone at WWE has been incredibly supportive, I am filled with gratitude for everything they have done for me. I have also had an ACL injury for over a year and have been unable to perform in the ring but WWE still supported me through all of that. They understand that India is where I need to be. We are working together on a new arrangement that allows me to be home, but still part of the WWE Universe.”
We saw previously with former NXT Women’s Champion Kairi Sane that she’s no longer an active wrestler for WWE, but still has some kind of ambassador role while she’s in Japan, and it sounds like this could be something similar.
