WWE is always on the lookout for talented stars they can sign to their numerous brands. NXT UK, in particular, has been known to have some of the best talents in recent memory. It seems one of their stars is gone from the company.

A couple of years ago, Candy Closs was confirmed to have signed with NXT UK. Floss had worked across Europe gaining experience. She also worked in Japan and is known for her pink hair.

Candy Floss took to Twitter recently and officially announced that her contract with WWE NXT UK contract expired in December 2021, and she is no longer with the company.

In May 2019 I lost my mum to cancer then in January 2020 I signed with NXT UK.


Unfortunately, my dream career with WWE got put on hold when, during the pandemic, I was diagnosed with severe PTSD and anxiety because of the trauma I experienced witnessing my favorite person, my mum, fight for her life. I decided I needed to put my mental health first and WWE couldn’t have been more supportive. In December 2021 my contract with WWE expired. It is very sad for me as wish my journey with WWE didn’t have to end like this as I’ve worked so hard to get signed. I just want to say thank you to WWE for dealing with me so well as I know it’s not an easy situation, I’m very grateful for it all.

From fighting in the ring nearly every day, I found myself being in the biggest fight with my mental health. On a positive note, I am doing so much better! My dream isn’t over, life just decided to be very unfair (not so sweet towards me. Hopefully I will be back in the ring again sometime soon and hurt my 90 year old back again.

Thank you to everybody for supporting me!

Mental health should never be taken lightly and we can understand where Candy Floss is coming from. It remains to be seen what is next in store for the former WWE NXT UK star now that she is gone from the company.
