Thea Hail is WWE’s latest young prospect. The NXT star is only 18 years old and still a student in high school. Today, she will finally graduate, according to a vignette on the latest episode of NXT 2.0.

Hail has been featured in vignettes during NXT for the past two weeks. The video packages have largely focused on her youth. Thea noted that before she gets started in NXT, she has to finish school.

With her graduation happening today, WWE aired another segment during last night’s show. Thea Hail said she has been accepted into several top colleges, and she will make her announcement on next week’s show. Thea will have to pull double duty, appearing for WWE while pursuing her education.

On next Tuesday’s NXT, Thea Hail will be there in person. She will celebrate her high school graduation. Thea will also announce her school of choice.


Thea is the youngest superstar currently on any WWE roster. She previously appeared on the independent circuit as Nikita Knight. Thea is a member of the same WWE Performance Center class that produced Roxanne Perez, Fallon Henley, Arianna Grace, and more.

Hail is a six-time state champion vaulter. The talented gymnast has a ton of athletic talent and can’t wait to showcase it for the WWE Universe. She’ll do it all while attending college, but it’s a challenge she is more than ready to tackle.
