Nikkita Lyons worked hard to earn place among the elite of NXT 2.0. Nikkita Lyons, whose real name is Faith Jefferies, made her debut on an episode of NXT 2.0 from February 2022.
Lyons took to Twitter on Friday and posted a throwback video of her being offered a WWE contract by Triple H. The Lioness of NXT thanked Triple H and WWE for giving her the opportunity to work for them.
Exactly ONE year ago today, I signed with @WWE. Moved to Orlando a month later. Had some complications that I’d love to share one day. Been 9 months since I started training with the company and I’m extremely grateful.
THANK YOU @TripleH and @WWE ! You changed my life. 🦁❤️🙏🏼
Nikkita Lyons was originally supposed to make her SmackDown debut with Zoey Starks tonight on the blue brand. Shawn Michaels revealed that Stark sustained an injury during her match with NXT Champion Mandy Rose at HeatWave.
The Heartbreak Kid further stated that Nikkita Lyons was medically unavailable for the tag team match tonight. Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark were replaced by Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. They’ll face Natalya and Sonya Deville tonight on SmackDown. We’ll have to see what’s next for Nikkita Lyons, but she’s not going to let a setback get her down.
