Tesha Price has been in the wrestling industry since 2017. She started her journey in pro wrestling at SHINE 47 and competed in a battle royal at that event, thus marking the start to something rather special, many would argue. WWE evidently saw something special in her, as she has just been signed by the company.
Price already appeared for WWE, specifically as Tenilla Price in NXT back in 2018. She had a match against Lacey Evans and lost. Although most recently, pro wrestling fans will remember her most as wrestling for AEW.
The new signee made her first appearance for AEW back in November of 2020 and lost that match to Big Swole. She made other appearances after that point (21 or so). According to her Wikipedia page, she is still with the company, but that may be due to a lack of updates made to the page. Wrestling Inc states that the “AEW Enhancement Talent” did, in fact, sign with WWE.
Tesha Price is now going by Fallon Henley and wrestled at the Tuesday’s WWE 205 Live tapings on Tuesday. Those tapings are scheduled to air this upcoming Friday. She, of course, also appeared last week on an episode of NXT in a backstage segment featuring Grayson Waller and LA Knight. All of her social media handles have also been changed, as can be seen on her respective pages.
A lot of recent attention has been given to the many releases that WWE has made over the last two years, but it must also be said that WWE has signed a lot of new talent, the focus, as always with the company, seems to be younger talent as opposed to the older members of the roster. This and recent signings prove just that.
