Shotzi Blackheart is WWE bound.
On Oct. 9, Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens reported that Independent female wrestler Shotzi Blackheart had signed a developmental contract with WWE/NXT. Shortly after Casey's report came out, Shotzi took to social media to deny she had signed, while also calling out the report for other misinformation.
In a now deleted tweeted, Shotzi wrote in response to the report, "Who said? Also im 26 not 28....cant even get my age right." Shotzi also posted her schedule through early November, which features appearances at IMPACT All Glory, GCW's event on Oct. 28, Beyond Wrestling Uncharted Territory on Oct. 31 and more. Furthermore, Shotzi noted that her Wednesdays are open.
It turns out, the report was true as EVOLVE shot an angle at EVOLVE 137 where NXT General Manager William Regal offered Shotzi a WWE/NXT contract.
