NXT Wrestler Nixon Newell’s Name Has Been Changed

Nixon Newell recently returned from an injury that kept her out of action for months and now the NXT wrestler has a brand new name. 

According to the Performance Center website, Newell’s new name is Tegan Nox

As you may recall, Nox signed with WWE in 2016 but was quickly sidelined with an ACL tear after reporting for duty. She finally made her NXT debut in April using her real name.

With the name change — and WWE seemingly ramping up for the second Mae Young Classic — one would think she’d be a lock for this summer’s tournament.
