Former NXT UK wrestler Aleah James confirms WWE departure

Former NXT UK wrestler Aleah James is officially no longer under contract with WWE.

In a tweet on Monday, the 24-year-old James confirmed her WWE departure. She was still under contract following the closure of NXT UK but hadn't been brought into NXT.

James wrote: "Sooo now we know I’m free as a bird.. who am I going to wrestle first?????"

James started her in-ring career in 2019 and first appeared for NXT UK in 2020. She hasn't wrestled since defeating Stevie Turner on an episode of NXT UK in March 2022.

It was announced in August 2022 that NXT UK would be closing its doors. WWE stated at the time that NXT UK would "form the foundation" for NXT Europe, which would launch in 2023.

Earlier this month, Paul "Triple H" Levesque said that the Endeavor-WWE merger has changed the timeframe for NXT Europe's launch:

It's just slowed down the process I think. At some point, end of the year, last year, whatever it is, we said in 2023 it would happen. Not having a crystal ball to see where everything was headed in that moment in time, obviously this transition with this merger with UFC with Endeavor and TKO, it's changed the timeframe. But I think the intent is still the same.

I mentioned under the premise of WrestleMania and Premium Live Events going global, we're a global company. We're looking to be everywhere. And I think — there are a lot of amazing talents here, internationally. And we'd love to explore that and give them opportunities to shine on the biggest stage possible and see what we can do with that. It's just going to take a little bit of time.
