WWE fans caught a glimpse of Ava engrossed in a phone call on the May 21st edition of NXT, confirming that the identity of Roxanne Perez’s opponent for NXT Battleground would be unveiled on the upcoming May 28th episode.

Though the exact contender for Perez at Heatwave remains shrouded in mystery, there have been intriguing discussions within NXT circles regarding a potential return to the brand.

According to Fightful Select, Tegan Nox has garnered interest from NXT officials, with requests for her utilization dating back to before the WWE Draft.

“One main roster name who has been requested by NXT officials recently is Tegan Nox, with requests for Nox to be used in NXT dating back to prior to the WWE Draft.”


WWE sources suggest that while there haven’t been immediate creative plans for Nox on the main roster, there’s a growing expectation for her to make a comeback to NXT in the near future. Sources within the brand have echoed this sentiment, underscoring the notion that Nox may indeed be on the brink of returning in NXT.

Interestingly, discussions with a former NXT talent reveal a prevailing sense that Tegan Nox harbors ‘unfinished business’ with the brand, a sentiment that has persisted even following her brief appearance last October.

Nox’s absence from WWE competition since an April 20th house show in Belfast, coupled with her last appearance on WWE TV dating back to January 4th, adds to the intrigue surrounding her potential return to NXT. As anticipation mounts and speculation swirls, all eyes remain on NXT as fans eagerly await the next chapter in Tegan Nox’s WWE journey.
