WWE held their Royal Rumble event last weekend, and plenty of fans were excited to see who the company would bring in. It turns out that they had more talent backstage than they had slots in the Royal Rumble matches, and one female NXT Superstar was cut pretty late into the planning process.

The 2023 Men’s Royal Rumble match included no talent from NXT. That being said, the Women’s match did include a few names from the company’s developmental brand. It turns out that they almost had another one.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Ivy Nile was a “late cut” in the 2023 Women’s Royal Rumble match. It was not noted who took her spot in the contest.
The company brought in a few extra women for the Rumble as alternates. One name known for being a late cut was Ivy Nile.
It was previously noted that, along with Ivy Nile, Maxxine Dupri was also a late cut from the Royal Rumble match. Both of them were noted as alternates for the big over-the-top-rope contest.
We will have to see what’s next for Ivy Nile. She has a ton of potential, and her skills in the squared circle are improving all the time. Ivy Nile might need a bit of work on the microphone, but you never know if a new gimmick could provide her with a fresh coat of paint to really help her shine.
