Shawn Michaels Confirms Stephanie Vaquer Is Headed To WWE


-- Just hours after CMLL announced that Stephanie Vaquer was abruptly leaving their promotion with rumors she was WWE bound, NXT head Shawn Michaels has confirmed the news in a social media post. Vaquer recently competed on AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door where she wrestled in a losing effort to Mercedes Mone but drew strong, positive reviews from fans and analysts. Based on Michaels' tweet, it appears Vaquer will begin her stint in WWE with NXT.

-- The timing of the announcement is interesting as it comes just days before WWE is in Mexico for two house shows - Saturday in Mexico City and Sunday in Monterrey though that could simply be a coincidence.
