Young, bold and boundlessly athletic, Aliyah welcomes the spotlight, perhaps because she’s no stranger to it. The WWE Universe has tracked her journey to Superstardom, beginning with appearances on the WWE Network original series Breaking Ground (where cameras documented Aliyah’s days training in the Performance Center) and extending to her first steps inside the NXT ring as a competitor.
Aliyah knew her future was in sports-entertainment the moment she saw Beth Phoenix and Mickie James battle on Raw in her hometown of Toronto. However, Aliyah’s path to the squared circle was an indirect one that started with circus training as a teenager, which allowed her to increase her flexibility and master her body movement — qualities that pay dividends inside the ring and spell trouble for her opponents. Now that she has traded trapezes for full nelsons, Aliyah’s sights are set on dominating NXT’s stacked Women’s division.
