Isla Dawn debuts on WWE NXT, attacks Alba Fyre


Isla Dawn made her NXT debut on Tuesday, costing Alba Fyre the NXT Women’s Championship.

The end of Tuesday’s show saw Isla Dawn appear on top of a ladder Fyre was on. She misted Fyre in the face, causing her to fall off the ladder and through the announcer’s table. Mandy Rose was able to get on her feet before the count of ten, allowing her to retain the NXT Women’s Championship.

Announcers identified Dawn as formerly from the NXT UK brand. She hadn’t appeared on NXT television following the closure of NXT UK, and her status within the company wasn’t known. Her last appearance was on the final episode of NXT UK, where she competed in a four-way match to determine the next challenger for the NXT UK Women’s title, which was won by Blair Davenport.

Tuesday’s show marked the second time that Fyre had failed to capture the NXT Women’s Championship. She and Mandy Rose last wrestled at NXT Halloween Havoc, with Fyre losing thanks to the help of Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. Fyre had taken out both women in the lead-up to Tuesday’s title match.
