Report: Latest News On Giulia And Her NXT Debut

Unfortunate news broke earlier today that Giulia has suffered a fractured wrist in her match for the Marigold promotion on Monday. With this in mind, she still plans to face Sareee ar Marigold’s next event in July.

But where does that leave WWE with Giulia?

According to a new report by Corey Brennan of Fightful Select, the plan is still to have Giulia debut at Heatwave against Roxanne Perez.

On May 21st, it was announced that Giulia had suffered a fractured wrist and would be out indefinitely. Following the news breaking, Brennan reached out to NXT and WWE sources, with those we spoke with noting that WWE remain hopeful that Giulia will be healed in time for NXT Heatwave. 

Brennan has further learned that after previously reporting the belief within NXT was that Giulia would be in a title match at the event, with WWE still currently targeting an NXT Women’s Title match with Roxanne Perez for the event on July 7th. However, it was stressed to Brennan that these plans are not set in stone and could change due to Giulia’s Marigold obligations and her current injury.

Speaking of Marigold, Brennan has confirmed previous reports that Giulia will remain available to use with the promotion following her starting with NXT, and has been booked for Marigold’s Summer Destiny event on July 13th. Giulia noted on May 21st that despite her injury, she still plans to compete on July 13th.  Sources in Japan we spoke to said the match with Sareee was expected, and should not impact Giulia appearing with WWE before then. 

Giulia is expected to lead the next class of talent to report to the WWE Performance Center, which is also expected to include names from the recent Australia tryouts.

Regarding her presentation, it has been stressed to Brennan that Giulia was signed for ‘who she is’, and that WWE will not look to fix something that isn’t broken.

Brennan has also learned more about Giulia’s backstage visits to WWE during WrestleMania weekend, with Giulia being outgoing and polite to NXT talent and higher ups alike, having a lengthy conversation with Shawn Michaels at NXT Stand And Deliver.

In asking more about Giulia’s English skills, Brennan was also told that “the language barrier” isn’t as big of an issue as prior to Triple H taking over creative of WWE, with one source pointing out IYO Sky, Asuka, Kairi Sane and more speaking their native language on WWE programming. That being said, WWE remains impressed by Giulia’s commitment to learning the language.
