WWE released many people from the company in May, but one former NXT Superstar claims that she wasn’t released at all. Kavita Devi was WWE’s first female Indian Superstar and she was reportedly among those cuts. She’s claiming a different story.
Devi recently spoke to the Hindustan Times where she revealed her current situation with WWE. She has been in India since January taking care of her husband who caught COVID-19. She claims that the reports about her release are not accurate.
She explained that she decided not to make a return to America and everyone at WWE was supportive of her decision. Now they are working on a new arrangement.
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.
Kavita Devi was not at the WWE Superstar Spectacle because she was in India. She hopes that she can be involved in future special events for the Indian audience. As of this writing we have not heard about WWE arranging another Indian exclusive event.
We will have to see what is next for Kavita Devi. WWE apparently didn’t give her a full release and they are hopeful that she will make a return. She signed with the company in 2017 after the Mae Young Classic, but she hasn’t wrestled much in the past two years.
