  1. Indigo Andy says:

    Marina Shafir not with Jessamyn Duke, huh? At this point NXT is easily making just as many stable blunders as the main roster does.

  2. Matthew P Lightizer says:

    “Fightful Select reports that Duke is not injured, but has been focusing on creating content for UpUpDownDown. She was a full-time game streamer when she was hired by WWE and creates digital content for the company full time now. It’s believed that she prefers creating content over wrestling the way things are now due to the pandemic.

    The plan was always for Shafir to team with someone else, and there are currently no plans for Duke to wrestle in NXT while she’s working on UUDD.”

    It means that Jessamyn Duke is now a producer and is no longer a wrestler.
