NXT ON USA: Olympic gold medalist Tamyra Mensah-Stock makes NXT in-ring debut

Posted on 3/31/124 by Colin Vassallo

Olympic gold medalist Tamyra Mensah-Stock made her NXT in-
ring debut last night in Melbourne, Florida, at a non-
televised live event.

She wrestled – and won – against BreAnna Covington in the
eighth match of the 10-match card. Covington is a track and
field athlete from Fresno who is also under a WWE
developmental deal.

Mensah-Stock, who won the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics
in the freestyle 68kg division, signed with WWE in May of
last year and has been training at the WWE Performance
Center ever since.

She had previously made an appearance at SummerSlam in Las
Vegas with fellow gold medalist Gable Steveson.

The 31-year-old became the first black female wrestler to
win a gold medal in women’s freestyle wrestling.
