Tough Enough competitor Daria Berenato made her NXT debut at last night’s live event in Orlando, Florida.
Daria, whose WWE signing was confirmed in October, took on Nia Jax. She competed under her real name and utilized the “Jersey Devil” nickname she had on Tough Enough.
She lost the match, but was upbeat about the experience on Twitter:
The first of many to come… My @WWENXT debut! @NiaJaxWWE this definitely isn't the last time #JerseyDevilTakeOver pic.twitter.com/OSPn0FUi3f

Nia also took to Twitter to talk about the match, complimenting Daria and telling the WWE Universe to keep and eye out for her:
Everyone look out for this girl! She's extremely talented! Honored to be her first match. @ToughDaria & yes I won ? https://t.co/64I5Cwh4te

Daria, who has a background in MMA, was the first woman to be officially eliminated from the latest season of Tough Enough and made headlines for coming out as a lesbian during a live broadcast of the show.
