Roderick Strong is no longer the only active wrestler in his family. His wife, Marina Shafir- one of the Four Horsewomen of MMA had her debut WWE match at an NXT live event, and cameras were there to capture every moment.

Shafir made her debut teaming with SAnitY’s Nikki Cross to take on Aliyah and Rhea Ripley during the show in Largo. Her style was said to be very similar to Ronda Rousey. She finished the match with a Package Slam and a Side Choke for the quick tap out.

Reddit user Sludgebeard explained that Shafir was very protected during the match. The user also revealed that Shafir was specifically being recorded during the match, which leads many, including ourselves, to believe that footage will be used for a future package, feud or documentary.

The user adds that Jessamyn Duke was scheduled to make her debut at the show too,  but did not compete during the night despite being advertised.


FLWrestlingFan on Twitter showcased Shafir in action with some photographs and a GIF showing Shafir in action. Check out the tweets below:

There is no debut date set for Shafir in NXT or on the main roster, though there is a fair chance she has made her debut by Evolution for a rumored Four Horsewomen of WWE vs. Four Horsewomen of MMA match.
