Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark were originally scheduled to face Natalya and Sonya Deville on the August 19th 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown in Montreal, Canada. Lyons and Stark were replaced by Toxic Attraction members Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin. Jayne and Dolin ended up picking up the victory to advance in the tournament to crown new women’s tag team champions.
Lyons tweeted about there being “complications” since she debuted with WWE NXT and she also responded to fans with clarification…
Lyons: “Exactly ONE year ago today, I signed with @WWE. Moved to Orlando a month later. Had some complications that I’d love to share one day. Been 9 months since I started training with the company and I’m extremely grateful. THANK YOU @TripleH and @WWE! You changed my life. 🦁❤️🙏🏼”
@Rumblewar: “Please stay humble and don’t complain you know what happens to talent that complains on Twitter future endeavor especially with 14 new prospects come in Plus almost a whole NXT UK roster just be patient🦁”
Lyons: “Medical complications 🙏🏼✨”
@RVDBRONCOS: “If you got vaccinated, would there still be medical complications? 🤔”
Lyons: “Yes, it didn’t have anything to do with the vaccine. One day I may do a live on ig or something and share. I hope you have a blessed night. 🙏🏼”
