Tegan Nox of WWE NXT came out as Lesbian, the star stressed her friend Sonya Deville helped during the course.
Steffanie Rhiannon Newell, professionally known as 'Tegan Nox,' is Welsh professional wrestler who is known for her stint on WWE's NXT. The pro wrestler prior to signing with WWE used to wrestle on the British independent circuit under the ring name 'Nixon Newell.'
According to the sources, the pro wrestler used to play football (soccer) for a number of teams in her area and was also in the trial for Cardiff City and the Welsh national team. However, following her knee injury at the age of 13, the star wrestler gave up the idea of continuing soccer.
When she turned 16, Nox took a long hiatus from all kinds of sports citing her knee injury and a lack of passion for the sports as her reasons. But shortly, she found something new to ignite the passion for sports, and it was wrestling.
We know how great she is in what she does, but there's something you should know about the wrestler. Tegan Nox recently announced something and came out of the closet.
