Backstage News On WWE’s Plans For Giulia In NXT & Tentative First Match

— Former STARDOM champion Giulia officially joined WWE but apart from being shown in the audience at NXT Stand & Deliver last month, has yet to make an appearance for any of WWE’s three brands. While waiting for her debut, Giulia has been a part of Rossy Ogawa’s new promotion – Marigold – and wrestled on their inaugural “Marigold Fields Forever” show this past weekend.

— On Wrestling Observer Radio recently, Dave Meltzer noted that Giulia was expected to work for both promotions for the time being with her expected start date in WWE being the July 7 NXT Heatwave in Toronto. At some point later this year, it is expected that Giulia would shift her base to Florida with her family to essentially work full-time for WWE but still appear on any big Marigold shows.

— NXT Insider Corey Brennan has also suggested July 7 as a logical start date for Giulia and he went further on X by stating that WWE is tentatively planning on having Giulia wrestle reigning NXT women’s champion Roxanne Perez at Heatwave. He also threw out the idea that Giulia would bring the NXT women’s title to “Marigold Summer Destiny” less than a week later on July 13, which by inference would assume that she would beat Perez for the title.
