Two new signees with NXT have received their in-ring names from WWE. Both wrestlers have added their new ring names to their Instagram accounts. Faith Jefferies will now be known as Nikkita Lyons. Jaylen Williams will go by the name Raelyn Divine.
Jefferies kept her real name as her Insta handle. She added “WWE Superstar Nikkita Lyons” to her profile. Jaylen Williams changed her Insta username to reflect the new identity. She’s going by raelyndivinewwe.
Jaylen Williams got a WWE contract after a tryout with the company in August of 2021. Williams was a varsity basketball player at Penn State. She brings a strong look and natural athleticism to the company.
Faith Jefferies is a recording artist and model who also promotes herself as an MMA, boxing, and fitness coach. She also fits the mold of young, athletic talent. Jefferies also has a sizeable following on TikTok of nearly 38,000.
WWE continues to look at athletes outside of the world of wrestling as they try to build their future talent roster. They recently started a collegiate NIL program to help scout talent from all realms of collegiate athletics. Those with the right pedigree and the right look can earn WWE contracts at the end of their college careers.
The Cavinder Twins are seen as the stars of the initial NIL signees. While they came a little after that program, Faith Jefferies and Jaylen Williams will be looking to make a name for themselves in WWE. It sounds like they will be ready to debut soon.
