After an 11-month hiatus due to an ACL injury sustained in October 2022, a WWE star has made a triumphant return to the ring for their first televised match.
Arianna Grace, a second-generation NXT star and the real-life daughter of Santino Marella, made her highly anticipated WWE TV comeback last month during NXT Heatwave. In this appearance, she was involved in a segment alongside her real-life boyfriend, Channing ‘Stacks’ Lorenzo.
In the interim, the 28-year-old multi-talent ventured into the 2023 Miss Universe Canada competition, where she impressively secured a spot in the top 20.

However, the wrestling world eagerly awaited her return to in-ring action, and it finally materialized at an NXT house show held on September 9 in Melbourne, FL. Regrettably, her comeback match concluded with a defeat at the hands of Fallon Henley.
While her first match back didn’t end as desired, it hinted at her imminent return to televised in-ring competition. The anticipation has now been fulfilled, as Grace made her presence felt during the September 19 taping of NXT Level Up.
According to spoilers shared by PWInsider, Arianna Grace has reemerged with a ‘Beauty Queen’ character, possibly inspired by her participation in the Miss Universe Canada 2023 pageant. This persona could offer an intriguing new dimension to her wrestling career.
