She received a WWE tryout in January 2017 and signed a deal with the company in August 2017. She competed in the 2018 Mae Young Classic, losing to Rhea Ripley in the second round of the tournament. She was also a surprise competitor in the 2019 Women's Royal Rumble. She had been regularly featured at NXT live events and had made multiple appearances on NXT television. 

The 29-year-old last wrestled on July 19 at an NXT live event in Tampa, Florida. She teamed with Lacey Lane to defeat Marina Shafir & Taynara Conti. She appeared on the July 24 episode of NXT (taped on June 13), losing to Io Shirai by DQ.
