English professional wrestler Lucy Garland, known by her in-ring name Bobbi Tyler, has reportedly signed up with WWE and has also altered her Twitter handle, hinting some confirmation to the initial reports.
The report was first claimed by PWInsider.com, who indicated the changes in Bobbi Tyler’s Twitter and Instagram handles which now read @StevieTurnerWWE on both websites.
Moreover, her Instagram handle now says “NXT UK” as well, a further indication that the Briton is most likely to join the United Kingdom-based promotional brand rather than the main WWE roster.
However, there hasn’t been any official confirmation from neither WWE nor Tyler herself on her social media handles as of now.
