A look at Taynara’s emotional journey to NXT


WWE has posted a short video on its Performance Center YouTube account about NXT Superstar Taynara’s journey. In the video that you can view above, she comments about her judo background. She states it has always been a part of her life and it was her first passion.

She reported to WWE at their Performance Center in October 2016. She made her debut at WrestleMania Axxess in a losing effort in April 2017. Prior to joining WWE, she speaks about trying for the Brazilian Olympic Team for the Summer Olympics in 2016. Taynara starts to get emotional about losing her chance as she did not make the team.

Although she did not make the team and judo is still her first passion, she declares she fell in love with something else besides judo – wrestling.
