Music star Sexxy Red named host of NXT Battleground in UFC Apex

Over the past couple of weeks rapper Sexxy Red has been teased as the next entertainer turned wrestler for the WWE. Red most recently paid homage to WWE Hall of Famer and NXT VP of talent Shawn Michales in sampling his entrance music” Sexy Boy.” Red has been a lifelong WWE fan and has posted about her love for NXT, including about NXT Champion Trick Williams, The Meta-Four, and more. Red will now have a role in the company.

During her segment early on NXT, she introduced the new WWE NXT Women’s North American Championship belt. As notified qualifying matches have been set up for the belt in which the winning participants will participate in a ladder match. Red helped make the announcement along with her being the host of the NXT Battleground PLE.

Battleground will be Sun., June 9, 2024, at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. During Red’s segment Tatum Paxley showed up to try to grab the title from her, but she never got it away and Michin showed up in time to save the day and get their qualifier going. So we didn’t actually get the RKO she had been teasing on Twitter. However, we will be seeing more of her in a WWE ring.

Sexyy Red's appearance on "WWE NXT" comes ahead of her forthcoming project. Last week, the mother of two announced the title of the album In Sexyy We Trust and shared a clip of her next single "Awesome Jawsome." Her latest body of work dropped this past Friday, May 24.
